Berkeleyside Uncharted Evening Ideas Fests 2020 | David Brower Center | Thursday, 16. July 2020

We're bringing the lively, mind-opening conversations of the Berkeleyside Uncharted Ideas Festival to a series of single-evening events. Join us for ideas on the edge that challenge your assumptions and thinking. Our Evening Idea Fests are produced with the generous support of North Berkeley Investment Partners.
Our Evening Ideas Fest on Jan. 30 features two extraordinary speakers: Allison Arieff and Emmanuel Saez. Arieff, editorial director of SPUR and a contributing opinion writer at The New York Times, will be in conversation about "Why cars continue to make our cities hellscapes." Saez, Professor of Economics at UC Berkeley and both a MacArthur Fellow and recipient of the John Bates Clark Medal, is best known for his pioneering work on income inequality, done in collaboration with Thomas Piketty and Gabriel Zucman. He'll be in conversation about "The rich are different to you and me: they pay fewer taxes." 
It's an evening that is certain to make you think and then, we hope, act. 
Note: doors open at 6:30 p.m. on each evening and the program starts at 7 p.m.
