We’ll have climate activists and CEOs, actors and authors, scientists and engineers—plus a guy who can teach you to make the world’s best paper airplane. (Check out the full list of speakers here.) If you can’t make it to San Francisco, or if you’re just not into crowds, don’t worry. We’ve got all sorts of ways to participate from afar.
The festivities begin at 10 am PT on Friday, November 8, with the WIRED25 Summit. This will feature conversations with WIRED’s editor-in-chief, Nicholas Thompson; the heads of LinkedIn, Cloudflare, and Instagram; and some of the young activists behind the historic climate action lawsuit Juliana v. United States, among many others. (Read on for the full event schedule.) We’ll be livestreaming the entirety of this event right here on WIRED.com. You can follow along on social platforms as well. We’ll be streaming via Facebook Live, plus we’ll be live-tweeting on @WIRED and giving you behind the scenes looks and exclusive interviews on WIRED Instagram (look out for those IG Stories as well!).
Saturday, November 9, is fam and culture day, with talks and immersive events with people like actor Chris Evans, sci-fi author N. K. Jemisin, and former Mythbusters host Adam Savage. Stay tuned to those aforementioned social accounts.
