Hey Europe! It's time to talk!

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

Europe Talks 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.

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

Europe Talks 2024

In the Spring of 2024, Europeans will elect the next EU Parlaiment. With multiple global crises, rising extremism, and a surge of disinformation, it’s more important than ever for Europeans to connect across borders.

Europe Talks 2024 makes that possible.

From April to June 2024, thousands of participants from across the continent will meet for one-on-one conversations. Participants from EU member states and the wider Europe will be connect to discuss issues that cross national and supra-national borders, such as climate change, security, mobility, and war. The 2024 program includes eight digital dialogue days and four onsite events in different European cities.

Europe Talks 2024 is organized by My Country Talks together with Gazeta Wyborcza (Poland) and the European Cultural Foundation. The project is funded by the European Commission Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV).
