Time magazine says that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, will host a special Time100 Talks virtual event.
Harry and Meghan will make opening and closing remarks, lead some of the conversations with guests, and will also join Time CEO and editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal for a conversation about creating safe and healthy online communities. Time says that the Duke and Duchess were involved in creating the theme and topics, and curating the guest list for the event.
The event, set for Oct. 20, is called “Engineering a Better World” and will include Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Rappler CEO and editor Maria Ressa and Center for Humane Technology president Tristan Harris, among others.
The Time 100 has been published annually since 2004, and highlights many of the most influential people in the arts, politics, and business. Last year the magazine, now owned by Salesforce founder Marc Benioff and his wife Lynne, announced that it would be expanding the brand to become a year-round staple. Time100 Talks are one of those extensions.
“Since launching in April, Time100 Talks has focused on solutions and visions of a better future through conversations with extraordinary leaders from around the world,” said Felsenthal in a statement. “This special episode marks our first collaboration, and we are thrilled to partner with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to explore these urgent issues.”
