Invest in our Brains: Invest in our Future


Invest in our Brains: Invest in our Future

How can we invest in our brains to thrive as a society?

Our brains hold the key to our individual and collective futures. Having a healthy brain and a toolbox of cognitive skills at the ready, ensures we are ready for whatever the future may bring.

Thanks to advances in science and technology, we can now see our brains like never before, enabling us to understand more about ourselves and our potential.

The Brain Capital Summit will reimagine a future where our brains matter most. Brain Capital is the cumulative value of our brain health and brain skills. By proactively prioritising the brain, we can unleash a new era of human flourishing.

Imagine future brains that are equipped to better meet the challenges of misinformation, anxiety, addiction or ADHD from the get-go? Where we give individuals the scaffolding they need to prevent derailment at critical junctures? We invite you to attend the inaugural Brain Capital Summit to discuss strategies for maximising brain health by identifying the drivers that we can influence—from what we eat to how we work and learn to where and how we live. The Summit will bridge the gaps between schools of thought and spark transdisciplinary approaches to proactively reduce the risks in our workplaces and our communities that do not serve our brains well.

The international Brain Capital framework is leading the charge for countries and organisations to prioritise the brain in all that we do, unlocking the potential of each and every individual. The Summit is an opportunity for us all to get out of our lanes to develop deep systems change. Our collective well-being and future prosperity depends on our ability to treat, nurture and care for those with neurological disorders and mental health conditions and unlock the potential of each and every brain.
