In the framework of the European Commission’s project Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange, and building up on the successful first edition in 2019, the second Online Euro-Med Debate Competition will be held on 18, 19, 25 and 26 April.
The event brings together debate teams from diverse backgrounds and students from higher education institutions to meet online and debate topics of their choice with the support of a resource network of debate Team Leaders, Trainers and Adjudicators.
Debate discussions will be framed around current social challenges and world events such as: the Arab Spring, democratic rights, education, climate change, immigration and power dynamics, amongst other topics.
Participants in the competition will be engaged in intercultural online debates, and will practice the essentials of effective communication, building arguments, listening and rebutting, structuring and presenting of speeches, intercultural awareness, and will be able to enhance their English language skills.
Participation in the second Online Euro-Med Debate Competition is open to Debate Team Leaders from the Euro-Med region and their local teams. Those who did not participate previously in an Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange Debate Team Leaders Training have to register by 29 March.
The Online Euro-Med Debate Competition is organised by the Anna Lindh Foundation, member of the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange consortium.
