What is The World Talks?

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

Join the global day dialogue and meet someone from a totally different country, context and mindset.

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.
