About My Country Talks

My Country Talks helps societies around the world to connect over the issues that divide them. Our unique matching algorithm makes it easy for media, nonprofits and governments to fight polarisation, arguably one of the most important issues facing society today. We help break people out of their filter bubbles, build empathy, and work to define common values that strengthen democracy - all with just a conversation.
