What is The World Talks?

The World Talks is a first-of-its-kind global dialogue experiment that invited thousands of people from around the world to exchange ideas, stories, and perspectives. On June 25, 2023 participants with different opinions were matched together for a 1:1 conversation online in English.

The World Talks is the first worldwide program by My Country Talks, a global nonprofit that helps societies around the world connect over the issues that divide them through dialogue. Since we started in 2018, we have helped 250,000 people across 30+ countries exchange ideas through 1:1 conversation. The World Talks is created in collaboration with 16 global, independent media organizations.
