Our Impact Areas

The Origins Project Foundation inspires and educates through provocative and exciting public events and online content. The expertise of the individuals and the subjects we discuss range over the full expanse of human intellectual inquiry–from fundamental questions about the Universe and humanity to issues at the intersection of popular culture and science. We also organize global excursions to interact with thought leaders, often with access to areas and projects normally beyond the reach of the general public.

Public Events

We bring renowned thought leaders and celebrities from the worlds of science, humanities, the arts, business, and government together in provocative events on stage to discuss the most important issues facing humanity in the 21st century.

Online Education

We produce a high-quality video podcast called the Origins Podcast. That and other online resources, such as our Science Matters program, help the public better understand and appreciate the ideas and innovations that are changing our world today and tomorrow.

Travel Adventures

Our Origins Travel adventures take small groups to sites of great historical significance and natural wonder. These include places of cultural and environmental richness that may be vulnerable to climate change or development pressures.
