We also run informal Chill Sessions every few weeks where participants have the chance to socialise and get to know each other better!

Our Story: 

Our founder Natalie created The Sapien as a passion project in August 2020 as a means of connecting with other like-minded individuals passionate about discussing, debating and reflecting on any topics about humanity and society. The Sapien, which began as one person with a burning passion, has now evolved into a youth organisation with a team of enthusiastic teenagers and participants all over the world. ​We hope to be able to grow and expand in the coming months, initiate exciting new projects and more!
