Europe Talks brings people together across political divides

When was the last time you talked politics with a stranger?

Europe Talks brings people together for a day of political dialogue. From October to December, thousands of participants from across the continent will meet for one-on-one conversations to discuss issues that matter to all Europeans.

How it works:

1. Answer Questions

Answer a few questions and give your opinion on the issues facing Europe right now

2. Get matched with your partner

You will be matched with someone from another European country, who answered the questions differently from you

3. Have a conversation

If both you and your match decide to meet, you can arrange a call on your favorite chat platform

About Europe Talks

Europe Talks 2021 brings together tens of thousands of people from all over Europe to have unfiltered conversations about the most pressing and polarising issues of today.

In a time when we are more connected than ever, it is still difficult to meet someone who sees the world from a different perspective. Europe Talks creates an open space for Europeans to share ideas for the future of the continent, and hear the stories and experiences of someone completely different from them.
