This year BEYOND will address questions crucial to our future creative industries. What part should the creative industries play in designing a zero-carbon future? Alongside operating more sustainably themselves, what role do the creative industries have in designing solutions? Can they imagine a future we want to live in and tell the stories of how we get there? And how do young voices get heard and their priorities built into what happens next in a meaningful way?
