about our projects
The Academy of Ideas hosts a yearly two-day festival, the BATTLE OF IDEAS. We also produce satellite events for the Battle of Ideas across the UK and Europe. Find out more at the Battle of Ideas Festival website.
We also produce standalone events, as well as podcasts of our debates and discussions of current events.
The Academy of Ideas founded the acclaimed Sixth Form debating competition, DEBATING MATTERS, a weekend summer university, THE ACADEMY, and LIVING FREEDOM, a residential school in London for 18- to 25-year-olds. These educational projects are now organised by a new charity, boi. Find out more about the charity's work here.
