What we're about

Globalizing Ideas

Thanks to our growing community, we can debate big ideas with people all over the world... Simultaneously!!

https://ideas-exchange.info/en/

Join our global community of minds and share with people in different countries and from all backgrounds thorough our weekly online debates. Imagine debating with people in 10 different countries at the same time... How awesome is that?

This is a safe, inclusive and respectful space designed to talk to other humans, learn from one another and implement our ideas, in all relevant aspects of life.

We will discuss both “big” and “small” ideas, talking about the past, present, and future, the ideal world and our everyday reality.

Each Meetup will have a main focus subject, with a wide margin to explore other interesting topics.

Our main rule:

“I do not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

Some subjects we’ll explore:

Human wellbeing and psychology

Relationships and family

Society, economics and politics

Lifestyles, cultures and languages

Technology and futurism

Philosophy, religions and ideologies

The “why” and “what for” of life

And many more, that we’ll decide on together…

Welcome to the global community of Ideas Exchange!

Where were the clothes you’re wearing made, and how about the cell phone or computer you’re reading this from? Many of the products we consume are made in China. Many of us don’t even realize. In our generation we have seen this country grow and slowly become a trading and economic powerhouse, whose factories create products for the entire world and, to some extent, we have come to depend on China, its cheap labor force which has allowed us to have technology, fashion articles and consumption products as never before in the past.

We have also been witnessing the scandals that surround China: the lack of information transparency, social hyper-surveillance, espionage, racial segregation, COVID-19 and the destruction of the autonomy and the rule of law in Hong Kong, to name but a few. While the People’s Republic of China grows in stature, becomes the world’s largest economy and a leader in various strategic sectors, we will ask ourselves:

How should we relate to its presence in the world?

We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

• China and COVID-19
• The ethics of doing business in China
• The social, political, and environmental impact of buying so many products made in China
• Is China the next great power?
• Does the world need China or does China need the world?
• Can we maintain our lifestyle without Chinese manufacturing?
• China vs democracy and human rights?

Upon finishing the get-together, we will have listened to divers points of view and reflected in our personal relationships with this simultaneously wonderful and mysterious country.

How Smart Are You? The Nature of Genius and Intelligence

Online event

$4.00

Welcome to this fascinating global debate… held simultaneously!

Join participants from cities the world over… don’t miss out!

You can book your space in a few easy steps.

The phrase "All men are created equal" is part of the United States Declaration of Independence. However, you can be forgiven for questioning this as we explore the incredible feats of a select group of human anomalies over the millennia. How do we compare to them?
Understanding the characteristics that constitute a prodigy or genius in general and the phenomenon of various types of intelligence may help us ‘normal’ humans better choreograph our everyday lives and understand our own cognition.

Are you a prodigy in some aspect of your life? Maybe you don’t even know it! Human genius offers a way to better comprehend how natural variations in abilities, that have existed for millennia, awaken when cultures and opportunity create, nurture, preserve, and share domains of activity uniquely calibrated to the prodigy’s special talents and abilities. When the timing is optimal, prodigies and genius flourish.

Find your passion and pursue it, create your own best work, never stop learning, acquire outside experiences, and start new hobbies and finally share your work with the world. Is this the recipe for each and every one of us?

We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.

Some subjects we’ll touch on:

• Genius – created by nature or nurture?
• Does ‘extraordinary opportunity’ create a prodigy?
• Do most people have the potential to achieve the status of genius?
• Differences in IQ between races, genders, and ethnicities – real or imagined?
• Child prodigies vs. adult geniuses
• Cultivating extraordinary skills
• Living in a “more intelligent” country – does it matter to you?
• Intelligence and mental health – the curse of the prodigy?
• Creativity and human genius – a dying breed in modern times?

Upon finishing the get-together, we will have reflected on human prodigies and our own potential to achieve intellectual genius.
