An increasing number of parents are choosing to raise their children gender-neutral. What will happen if the movement grows, and we raise whole generations of people who are not assigned a binary gender at birth? What would be the flow-on effects in health and education, and for our institutions of law and citizenship?

Presented in partnership with Melbourne Knowledge Week.
Swing by the Wheeler Centre in May for a series of lunchtime talks about the future. We promise no hazy trend-forecasting; we’ll stick to specifics. We’ll speculate on social structures and systems – from citizenship and gender to law and order – and discuss how changing things up might change our world. In partnership with Melbourne Knowledge Week, we’ll ask: what's broken, what's working, and what should we leave behind?
