The future can look pretty bleak. Climate catastrophes, new diseases, crumbling infrastructure, wealth inequality, cyber risks, geopolitical conflicts, and threats to democracy around the globe are just some of the things now shaking people’s confidence in a better tomorrow.

But human ingenuity is always a cause for hope, and every generation brings new thinkers, activists, entrepreneurs, and builders to work on the world’s biggest challenges.

This year, WIRED will celebrate its 30th anniversary by showcasing the people, platforms, technologies, and ideas that inspire us—and, we hope, will inspire you. Join us on December 5 in San Francisco for a thought-provoking program featuring some of the most influential people in tech, business, science, entertainment, and beyond as we explore technology’s impact on our past, present, and future—and dig into solutions and our optimistic vision for the next 30 years.
