From Maria Flachsbarth, Parliamentary Secretary of State for Germany to Eddie Ndopu, the first disabled man going to space, from Juan Somavia, Former Director General of the International Labour Organisation to Inverse K, a technologist and spoken word poet, from Claire Melamed, CEO of Global Partnership on Sustainable Development Data through to Estevao Ciavatta, celebrated film director and producer; this year’s cast will inspire and intrigue you –
