About

What is the Interactive Hub?

A place for U.S. Embassies, American Spaces, and those in the PD community at the US State Department to get information on live, interactive webchats produced by the Interactive team. Interactive webchats, or “interactives,” connect experts from the U.S. government, businesses and private citizens with foreign publics around the world on topics related to U.S. foreign policy such as economic empowerment, inclusive security, human rights and disinformation. They provide a dynamic forum for open discussion and idea exchange.

Who can join an Interactive webchat?

Interactive’s public facing webchats are accessible to anyone world-wide via an internet connection on a computer or mobile device, including in limited-bandwidth environments.

We encourage U.S. Embassies, American Spaces and third party Embassy partners to watch in viewing groups. Check out our Tips for Hosting a Viewing Group and be sure to check our calendar for Upcoming Programs.

​​​​​​​The Interactive team also supports virtual U.S. Speakers programs requested by U.S. Embassies. Contact your regional officer to request one.

Where can I view past Interactives?

You can view past webchats on our YouTube channel or our most recent content on the Content Commons website.

Can I produce my own webchat?

Yes! We provide training and consultation to any U.S. Embassy or American Space seeking to produce their own webchat- check out the Resources section on the home page for some basic recommendations and get in touch!
