About Us

We’re an online debate club for people who are interested in fascinating and profound issues, people searching for real human connection and fed up with the superficial nature of modern life.

About Ideas Exchange

It all started with a local community passionate about debating ideas, which had been getting together face to face since 2018 in Mexico City. When the pandemic started, the community went virtual and global, taking in participants from various continents.

Nowadays we get together every week with a new topic and exchange ideas with people from various countries and cultures, enriching our perspectives in a safe, inclusive, and respectful space which generates learning and growth as no other.
