Conversations for a Better World is a youth community for raising global issues and finding solutions. Conversations is all about ‘the power of we’ as well a forum to identify solutions, progress and forward-looking ideas for a better world. The idea is to get people talking about how we can co-create a better world. If we want to tackle the global challenges of our time, we need a lot of people to start talking.
