Oxplore launches its 50th Big Question
To celebrate our 50th Big Question, we teamed up with Oxford for Oxford and 472 Productions to invite 70 local state school pupils to celebrate our 50th Big Question at Lady Margaret Hall.
We had a fantastic day of workshops, lectures and debates themed around our 50th Big Question, "Would you pay everyone the same?", followed by a special performance of the student-run musical Made in Dagenham at the Oxford Playhouse. Read more

We have lift off!
Oxplore was officially launched by the University of Oxford’s Vice-Chancellor (Professor Louise Richardson) on 20 September 2017. As part of our launch we visited schools across the country as well as hosting a day of activities in Oxford for some of the schools who helped us design and build Oxplore over the last year. The day included workshops on the Big Question 'Would you want to live forever?' and young people had their say by voting live.
