Legacy[edit]

A modern iteration of the club, with the same and purpose, was launched in 1987,[3] on January 30, the 250th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Paine.

Sir Richard Jolly created The Headstrong Society at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in New York City in 1998. The purpose of the group was to bring experts from United Nations agencies together to discuss current events.
