About Civic Series

Civic Series ( helps you understand, think for yourself, and have meaningful conversations about the most important issues of our time, like Brexit, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, climate change, and many others. We run free, non-partisan events where you can ask questions of experts and discuss the most important issues of the day. Civic Series events are educational but we’re not academics or activists. Our expert speakers present multiple sides of the issue without telling you what to think. We have no agenda, other than to help you be a part of the conversation about what’s going on in the world you live in.

Civic Series is a non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers in the United States and Canada. Our main demographic are curious people in their 20s and 30s, though all are welcome.
