“B. PHL Fest 2021, will focus on unity and collaboration, awakening the innovative spirit in all of us and encouraging attendees and participants to learn, listen, connect and discover new ways to think, re-think, create and activate change,” the festival’s website reads.

There will be more than 70 sessions covering everything from healthy connections to equity and inclusion to how to prevent the next pandemic.

Wharton School professor Katy Milkman, who co-founded the Behavior Change for Good Initiative, an effort to test scientific approaches to behavioral change, will serve as one of three keynote speakers.

The others are Emmy Award-winning journalist Don Lemon, of CNN, and Wendell Holland, winner of “Survivor: Ghost Island” and the host of HGTV’s “Hot Mess House.”

Registration for both virtual and in-person events can be done online. Participants who attend in-person will have to show proof of vaccination.
