We imagine there has been an apocalyptic disaster, and that the sole survivors, the audience, have built a life raft to take them to a new land, where they will have the opportunity to build a new society.

Representatives from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds will vie for the one remaining space on the life raft, each presenting an argument for why their particular expertise will be most useful for the health of the future society, and rebutting the others.

At the end of the debate, the audience will vote for who has earned their place on the life raft—though it may be the “Devil’s Advocate,” who argues our future is better off without any of the experts.

This talk is part of the Cambridge Global Health Year series.
