Bring together some of the most senior scientists, science communicators and advocates in the world as key-note speakers and debaters;
Maximise the use of modern media (Skype feed-ins, webcasting, audience participation through texting and Twitter) with a view to facilitating global and interactive audience participation (both from inside and outside the auditorium) into the debate.
