Cambridge Global Challenges


Being Human takes place in various locations around the UK, centred on the Senate House in London. The festival is led by the University of London's School of Advanced Study, working in partnership with the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.

Being Human is a national forum for public engagement with humanities research. The festival highlights the ways in which the humanities can inspire and enrich our everyday lives, help us to understand ourselves, our relationships with others, and the challenges we face in a changing world.

In 2016 Being Human featured over 250 events in 45 towns and cities across the UK, engaging the public with big questions, big debates and innovative activities focused around the theme of ‘hope and fear’. The theme of this year's festival is "Lost and Found".
