About Our Organization

City Talks is a nonpartisan Paris-based global innovative organization devoted to sharing big ideas about the Future of Humanity, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (15 minutes or less), workshops, publications, working group sessions and artistic gatherings.

CITY TALKS began in 2018 in Paris under the name of Paris Talks, as a one-day conference where Technology, Entertainment, Art and Science do converge, covering a multitude of topics, from business to education to global political, financial and environmental issues.

Today, we’re a community that welcomes individuals and organizations from diverse disciplines and cultures who seek a deeper understanding of the current and future world challenges. We are passionate about the belief in the power of ideas to shape policies and influence positive change for a better world.

We’re Committed to Diversity

As a nonpartisan and international platform for values-based innovation and the exchange of grand ideas, City Talks is dedicated to work in a manner that will always be open and supportive of diversity and inclusion in all its forms. This involves recognizing and equally valuing everyone’s perspectives regardless of race, ethnicity, ability, class, religion, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation, or any other differentiating features. By fostering a global community of diverse voices, talents, and backgrounds, we are better able to enact meaningful change on the global stage and ensure that the opportunity for social and intellectual impact is available to everyone.
A Strong Belief in Possibility

A Strong Belief in Possibility

At City Talks we strongly believe in the amazing potential of everyone and mostly in our collective potential to make our aspirations happen, and so we usually act with courage, boldness and perseverance in pursuit of transformational impact of Grand Ideas.

Locally Rooted Perspectives on Global Affairs

While being a global Ideas’ platform, we value the enormous assets in the communities that host our Ideas’ Festivals. We enjoy immersing ourselves in local perspectives, needs and opportunities, and work in deep partnership with community leaders, visionaries, educators —all while also seeking to build our understanding of what is possible based on insights from outside of our communities.
