All our events are 100% free and volunteer-run; you can help us run events, too. We are a "crossroads community" and anyone who is global or aspires to be is kindly invited to step up. If you would like to help us organize or suggest new events and ideas, simply get in touch with TP.

Let's also learn from each other (and show others) how being global gives a completely unique perspective on so many things, the way we experience life, how we open up to the world, and connect the most contrasting corners of the planet!

Together We Can Discover Any Culture, Speak Any Language & Meet With All Local Globals in London!

This group was set up by the same team who created and run Outreach Digital (https://www.meetup.com/Digital/) and FREE Outdoor Trips from London (https://www.meetup.com/Free-Outdoor-Trips-From-London/), two of London's largest Meetup Groups. We are still growing, so we welcome any help in any shape.
