On Friday The Periscope Post launch Agora, a new opinion forum chaired by H.R.H. Prince Pavlos of Greece in which key voices in politics, economics and culture will offer opposing, and often controversial opinions on a range of topics chosen by Pavlos, himself an important voice in the business community.
The first topic for debate will ask if Germany, who failed to conquer
Europe through military power, are now succeeding through financial and
socioeconomic power. Opinions will come from a major art curator, a high
profile journalist, an author, a successful investor and Prince Pavlos
himself. Readers are invited to add their perspectives to enrich this
unique online debate.
Agora - the Greek word for market - aims to become a marketplace of
ideas in which the opinions of thought-leaders are pitted against each
other, and readers can join the debate with their own thoughts. Prince
Pavlos said “in Greece, as in the UK we have a rich history of debating
society’s predicaments openly and passionately. It will be fascinating
to see how our commentators divide opinion and our readers enrich the discussions with their views.”
The Periscope Post’s CEO Thomas D Gommes said “with so much happening in
the world and the abundant yet disparate comment around that online, we
wanted to create a place to explore all sides of the key issues
affecting us today. Pavlos has a unique experience and outlook, and
brings together the world's most engaging voices."
The Periscope Post is a London-based news website which curates the best
of the world’s news and opinion, giving its well-informed but busy
audience a handpicked digest of world events and culture throughout the
day, every day.
