So as we usher out 2015 and welcome in the New Year, Sunday Night Live are pulling together a great series of events exploring the key topics and issues that are going to shape 2016. Whether Sadiq Khan winning as the new Labour Party London Mayor puts a stop to the convulsions still gripping the party over Jeremy Corbyn; why the EU referendum is getting the Tories in a spin; how the US Presidential race is skewing sensible debate on gun control, immigration and terrorism and putting the world’s greatest nation to shame; whether the attempts to resolve the Syrian conflict will ease the tragedy facing millions of refugees; can the world stop ISIS inpsite of their relentless march in the social media sphere; whether the Paris deal on climate change will lead to global cooperation to end the man-made assault on the world; and how disruptive technologies are going to impact the way we live, earn and work.
So save the date for our first New Year session on Sunday 31st January at the Stratford Picture House bar, London E15 1BX. Further details will be circulated in the coming weeks, but the meantime: have a look at what the pundits say. Here’s a link to the Economist’s short film of top news trends that they say will define, for better or worse, the coming year.
