IDEASpHERE was a two-day celebration of powerful ideas during which we officially launched the CAMPAIGN FOR HARVARD KENNEDY SCHOOL. The research and real-world application of powerful ideas by HKS faculty, alumni, and students were on display— but not through typical PowerPoint lectures. This event featured innovative talks, presentations, simulations, and interactive discussions delivered by inspirational members of the HKS community. We designed our AGENDA to reflect the diversity and breadth of our critical research, as well as our applied work across the globe in public service, policy, and leadership.

Thank you for your participation.
