The theme for Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2019 is change. Many of our events focus on transformation, the implications of the technology revolution and wide-ranging social and political changes, from elder care and homeworking to house sharing. David Cain, the Cambridge Festival of Ideas manager, said: "The Cambridge Festival of Ideas highlights the latest thinking about the important topics shaping our lives. Change is everywhere. As we change too, so do you. And sometimes the smallest change makes the biggest difference. I'm looking forward to welcoming you to the University for a series of thought provoking events this October as we explore change in all its forms, identifying its challenges and embracing its opportunities."
