Intercultural debate

Jan 13, 2021

Various groups have been formed to exchange and debate with various young people around the Mediterranean. More than 50 young people were involved (many in France and Algeria but also in Morocco, Greece, Bulgaria) and chose various subjects on which they wanted to debate and train. Debates have been held on various topics chosen by the young people themselves such as : “Do video games make you violent? “and “Should art be a profession?”, “Should empathy classes be given at school? “This house believes that COVID-19 had some positive impacts on our society./This house believes that students shouldn’t have homework tasks after school”, “This house believes that Europe should enhance collaboration with Africa and Middle East for legalizing immigration”.

Each time the intercultural realities and differences, especially between the north and south of the Mediterranean were addressed. For each group there were various meetings and training sessions, preparations, debates and evaluations. Here are a few dates: 13, 20, 27 June, 19, 30 September, 10, 17, 23, 31 October, 14, 20, 27, 28 November … And a wide variety of topics were discussed.
