Europe Talks brings people together for a day of political dialogue

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

Europe Talks brings people together for a day of political dialogue. On December 13, 2020, 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 for 3:00PM (15:00 CET) on December 13th, 2020.

About the Project

Europe Talks 2020 is the only event of its kind that 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 discuss the most pressing issues of today, and share ideas for the future of the continent. Most importantly, participants will hear the stories and experiences of someone completely different from them, gain new perspectives, and build long lasting friendships.

The coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult to meet someone new, but dialogue is more important now than ever. That’s why this year, Europe Talks 2020 will be totally digital, with thousands of conversations happening online as well as digital programming from across the continent.

Europe Talks is an annual event hosted by My Country Talks. Learn more about the project and past events here.
