Organise an event
My Country Talks is a platform that can be used in any language on any scale - from a small town to an entire continent. If you are a national or regional website, a radio station, a television broadcaster or a blog and you want to get thousands of your readers to meet up for one-on-one political discussions then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and become a My Country Talks partner.
1. Register as a partner
Give your event a name, for example: Italy Talks. You are also welcome to partner with additional media outlets in your region or country. Choose a date on which your readers will meet up for one-on-one discussions
2. Draft some questions
These should be questions on which your readership is particularly divided. For example: Has your country accepted too many refugees?
3. Readers sign up with the MCT widget
Readers answer the questions and complete the registration in an embeddable widget. The My Country Talks platform collects all the answers and data for you – but only you have access to the information.
4. The My Country Talks algorithm matches your readers
The MCT software uses an algorithm to match your readers based on their opinions. The software matches pairs with maximally contrasting opinions, meaning the widest difference in their answers to the registration questions.
5. The pairs arrange their meetings independently
On the day of the event, participants then meet up across your region or country for political debates. And you can report on the results
