The Origins Project hosts a variety of public and scholarly events throughout the year all over the world. From transdisciplinary symposia and international conferences to public debates and dialogues, and film, music and dance events, each foster discussion and stimulate new thinking. Our research symposia involve established leaders in various fields as well as the best emerging young researchers, and follow these up, where possible with new collaborative research projects, white papers and journal articles.
All of our public events are filmed and provided publicly on our Origins Project YouTube channel online. Our scientific workshops are also filmed, with the intent of using videos and content for educational purposes, delivered through our growing global resource center, the Origins Project Education Portal.
