What is ZORBA? Protected content
Zorba is a discussion forum. In Protected content was started by a group of Spanish grad students and young professionals in Washington DC. Zorba meets once or twice a month, inviting guest speakers to talk about different topics. In the past years we have created new chapters in Madrid, Cairo, Tunis, London and Paris.
Most of the issues we talk about are related to international relations, economics, politics, and global issues like climate change, development, and even astrophysics or history (see link for past sessions). The goal is to learn and enjoy vibrant discussions. Zorba:
-is not politically affiliated
-follows chatham house rules
-seeks diversity of topics and members
