About us

At Conversation at the Crossroads, our vision is to create diverse communities on a local and global level that empower more people to engage in the social, environmental and political challenges of our time.

Our Mission is to bring people back together, to be inspired and energised, and to learn from each other. Through thoughtful and informed conversation, we equip people with the necessary tools, skills and understanding to become drivers of change within their communities.

We do this through organising both large and small events, online and face-to-face where people can engage on the issues presented. Our Coordinating Group is made up of volunteer professionals based in Melbourne (and some around the world) who share a passion for meaningful change starting with conversation.
