Over the last financial year, weโ€™ve programmed our events to provide the safe spaces for conversations about subjects that are really bothering people. These included an examination of the ethics of outrage in an online world, and an IQ2 debate on privacy for children online. As we launch into a new year, we're exploring new ways to make a difference in the world. Thanks for those who support us by attending our events.
