Debate workshop in BudapestDIA 2015.06.12
Between June 4-6 a dozen of committed young professionals gathered from Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, USA to talk about alternatives to teaching debate.
The aim of the international workshop was to explore common grounds for further cooperation in empowering young people via debate skills development.
The event was the closing event of DIA’s 5 year debate program, called Raise your Voice! through which we reached out to thousands of young people and hundreds of teachers through a variety of debate activities and projects.
The international workshop created a platform for discussions about the potential and the limitations of debating and also how empowerment through debate is essentially a social innovation tool.
We all parted by hoping that this was just the beginning…
