Shaping the future through public debate

Common Sense Society is proud to sponsor the Battle of Ideas festival in London, England, held October 28-29. This annual festival presents over a hundred debates and brings together nearly four hundred speakers and thousands of attendees from all walks of life, fields of expertise, and political perspectives to explore the future of political life. 

Be sure to stop by Common Sense Society’s booth and attend our panel discussion on the future of museums, hosted by Emma Webb, director of Common Sense Society–United Kingdom. 

Other topics explored at the festival include the influence of Andrew Tate on young men, figuring out “WhatsAppened,” and major social trends. Participants will seek answers to critical questions like: Why is social conservatism making such a comeback, particularly among a younger generation keen to spurn sexual freedom? Or, with the continued divisive influence of identity politics, how do we approach debates and campaigning on women’s rights and racial equality?

We look forward to seeing you there!
