Join the technologist, business leader, and philanthropist Bill Gates as he lays out a clear plan to prevent future pandemics.

The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over. But even as governments around the world try to get it under control, they’re also starting to talk about what happens next. How can we prevent another pandemic from killing millions of people and devastating the global economy? Can we even hope to accomplish this?

Bill Gates believes the answer is yes. Before he became an expert on climate science, he was known as one of the few who studied pandemics – how they start, how they spread, how they can be controlled.

In conversation with the BBC’s Media Editor Amol Rajan, he will lay out clearly and convincingly what the world should learn from COVID-19, explain the science of fighting pandemics, and suggest what all of us can do to help prevent another one.

Don’t miss this exciting conversation with one of the most innovative thinkers of our time.

Tickets to this livestream event include a copy of Bill Gates’s new book, How To Prevent the Next Pandemic (RRP £25), available for UK delivery only.

Additional guests to be announced soon. 

This livestream event is held in partnership with HowTo Academy.
