Unity’s “Town Hall” is an interactive space designed for dynamic debates and direct engagement with policymakers. You can participate in meaningful conversations, challenge ideas, and contribute to shaping policies that affect your life. The Town Hall supports various debate styles, including consensus-driven formats and clear point-of-disagreement highlights, ensuring a rich and impactful dialogue.

Seamless chat functionalities allow you to open new conversation avenues by directly messaging anyone, even if you’re not connected. By opting in, you can discover exciting connections and collaboration opportunities within the Unity community.

Unity respects your need for anonymity in certain interactions while ensuring accountability. The platform provides tools to maintain your anonymity where desired, promoting open and honest communication.
