Here at GTT HQ, in times of news (and fake news) overload, we are loving The Conversation!

There is even a Curious Kids  section of The Conversation where you can find the kind of questions that are normally difficult to find answers to!


The Conversation is an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. Their team of professional editors work with university and research institute experts to unlock their knowledge for use by the wider public.

Access to independent, high quality, authenticated, explanatory journalism underpins a functioning democracy. The aim is to allow for better understanding of current affairs and complex issues. And hopefully allow for a better quality of public discourse and conversations.

The Conversation believes in open access and the free-flow of information. The Conversation is a free resource: free to read (they say they will never go behind a paywall), and free to share or republish under Creative Commons licensing. All you need to do is follow simple guidelines.

The newsroom is based in London, but the team is part of a global newsroom able to share content across sites and around the world. The Conversation UK is owned by The Conversation Trust (UK) Limited and is a not for profit educational entity.
