About us

Wide Orbits is a not-for-profit community about ideas, issues and culture. We are based in Dublin, Ireland, and have founded as a collection of old friends and colleagues, from across many countries. Wide Orbits covers a range of topics in Life, Science and Arts. We are focused globally, and are particularly interested in new ideas and concepts.
