Online Debates

Our online debate programme will take place during 2019 and is open to trained Team Leaders and their teams from across Europe and the Southern Mediterranean interested in piloting online debates across borders.

The debates will see intercultural teams working together to debate relevant topics across the region. Working with partners and building on the huge success of the Young Med Voice programme, participants will take part in debate training, online facilitated dialogue and put their learning to instant use in an online debate. This ground-breaking initiative will see participants working together with youth from other countries in order to develop critical thinking skills and explore subjects that can lead to advocacy impact.
