Parlia for Teaching

Parlia is the Encyclopedia of Opinion, designed to be used as a free tool for teaching, critical thinking and exploring the world of ideas. Parlia “maps” complex debates around core curriculum subjects and questions in a clear and concise format for students and educators.

Parlia’s mission is to end polarisation by showcasing all the opinions that exist around a subject. We promote healthy debate and logical reasoning that bring conversations to life and energise classroom discussions.

Our collaborations with educational institutions including the universities of Oxford, Liverpool and City, have helped us become a reliable and engaging online learning platform.

– Teach complex subjects in a simple, digestible format

– Share as templates for classroom debates

– Supplement the core curriculum with engaging material and ideas from across the spectrum
