Call for Speakers for New Scientist Virtual Events

by | Feb 19, 2021

Live events may still be on hold, but here at New Scientist we are continuing to plan an exciting programme of virtual events throughout 2021. We’re getting audiences in excess of 1,000 for our evening talks with ticketholders from every corner of the world. Our 2021 line-up already includes speakers such as Carlo Rovelli, Ella Al Shamahi, Susan Schneider and Aubrey de Grey.

And at our recent one-day virtual event more than 4,100 viewers heard talks about the future of food and agriculture and engaged with a wealth of workshops, live science chats and activities run by partner organisations.

We’re now expanding our programme of virtual lectures and one-day events, as well as re-imagining our award-winning festival New Scientist Live. The themes of our one-day events this year include Science for good, sustainability, and the future of medicine …. we’re always open to ideas!

We’re on the lookout for inspiring speakers and performers, stimulating experiences and engaging activities. If that’s someone in your place of study and education, we’d love to hear from you! We particularly welcome applications from early-career and underrepresented scientists and communicators.

Please return your New Scientist Events 2021 Speaker Submission Form (doc) by Friday 5th March 2021 to New Scientist Live at:
