The place for ideas and inspiration

Our core mission is to provide education and learning platforms where ideas are explored through dialogue and turned into action. In an age of echo chambers and filter bubbles, we encourage the pursuit of truth by raising provocative questions and eschewing groupthink. We value open mindedness, critical analysis and people thinking for themselves.

Our main site is a digital media platform where we provide commentary on the ideas shaping our lives – and our future. We publish creative and intelligent journalism, helping our readers to understand the ideas that shape their worldview — and where we’re headed. Our articles are quite provocative and thoughtful, and now have an audience of between 3 and 5 million monthly readers.
