Doha Debates
December 12, 2018

In today’s deeply polarized and fragmented world, we have to learn to listen and act together. How do we tackle the gross injustices around us? How do we create a sustainable future for generations to come?

Through live debates, videos, blogs, and podcasts, we will bring people together around one urgent issue at a time. We encourage different perspectives, hear the arguments, question them, and turn ideas into action.

Forget what you think you know about debates! Doha Debates is new, different, respectful and challenging.

We all have a stake in our future, and we refuse to settle for a divided world.


To seek new and collaborative solutions to global challenges through debate and inspire individual action.


To unite and inspire a generation to solve the world’s challenges and build a better future for generations to come.
