Manifesto Club

The Manifesto Club is a pro-human campaigning network. Our aim is to bring together individuals whose ideas don’t necessarily fit into the politics of left and right, but who believe in developing people’s creativity and knowledge.

Ours is an agenda for a twenty-first century Enlightenment. We believe that humanity is capable of rising to the challenges it faces, however daunting they may seem. Through the use of reason we can begin to influence the course of history - and build a future where the human potential is developed to the fullest extent possible.

"Of all the political and cultural festivals, none beats the Battle of Ideas for its eclecticism and willingness to invite controversial and absorbing debate."
John Kampfner, Chief executive, Index on Censorship; former editor, New Statesman
