As an education charity with an uncompromising commitment to North South equality and as documentary film-makers, the Battle of Ideas is an absolute must for us. Staying ahead of global trends and discussing ideas with some of the great free thinkers of our time provides so much food for thought and such inspiration. This year’s Emerging Economies strand, The Battle for Prosperity, promises to firm up our intellectual muscle, challenge the West’s fears and engender some excitement about levels of growth in the East and developing world. WORLDwrite are delighted and honoured to be supporting this much needed festival again.

"The 2006 Battle of Ideas did what it said on the tin: prejudices were punctured, common wisdom was questioned and original thinking honoured. The saying was coined in Texas, but I suggest that the Battle of Ideas adopts it as the conference motto: ‘sacred cows make the best burgers."
