The Night of Ideas returns to more than 85 countries on 30th January 2020 with its 5th edition, based on the theme of ‘Being alive’.

Ecological balance and preserving biodiversity, the advent of artificial intelligence and modifying life, the fight against unequal living conditions, in France and abroad: hundreds of philosophers, writers, researchers, artists, activists and representatives of the public authorities are debating these issues in locations as diverse as the Sidney Opera House, the National Museum of Arts and Crafts in Paris, the New York Public Library, La Marbrerie in Montreuil and the Tjibaou Cultural Centre in New Caledonia.

Nearly 200 events celebrating the free flow of ideas and knowledge, creating an opportunity to discuss the solutions and challenges of today and tomorrow. A call for reflection, awakening, commitment and action.
