Although Probably42’s purpose is to generate ideas on any topic, these ideas are very often in response to specific issues, rather than new opportunities.

Each month we have a topic of the month which you may like to use yourself, particularly if you are setting up a face-to-face meeting such as a ‘Pie and Pint’ meeting.

In the Discussion Forum where we announce the Topic of the Month, we also usually include an Agenda which we use for our own Pie and Pint meetings. You can view these under the relevant topic heading at

We don’t use the agenda rigorously, it’s just there to scope the discussion a bit and keep us on the right track if we start to go off at a tangent.

Once we’ve had a discussion we also add a link to the output in the same discussion forum. You may want to use this as further input for your own thinking or discussions, or to compare ideas after the event.

Top 10 Issues

Probably42 is all about coming up with ideas on any subject but especially those that address some of the big issues of our time. We’ve selected a Top 10 issues which are addressed in the Manifesto of ideas. So you can see both the issues and possible solutions in that document.

To help provide a focus on these issues and their solutions there is also a discussion forum where we have put forward our current Top 10 Issues covered by the Manifesto. We would welcome your thoughts on these and other Big Issues not currently being tackled on the site and to suggest changes to those that are in the Top 10. You can view the discussion at:
