The socially acceptable answer to forgetting something always seems to be an expression of sympathy when in fact, being forgetful is a defining characteristic of being human. This talk is dedicated to something that unites us all in what can seem to be a world of disunity but is often overlooked - forgetting things, frequently, however big or small.

Charlotte is 17 years old and does not believe that good ideas belong only to the powerful. She likes to deconstruct seemingly normal behaviour, like being forgetful, and uncover just how much these inherently human habits we take for granted influence the functioning of our society.
