GLOBAL PEOPLE DISCUSSION
Young people have opinions about the world and its key issues, though their ideas are seldom expressed and shared in a meaningful way. The Global People Discussion is a global online event that provides a stimulating space where juniors from around the world can express and develop their opinions in a friendly conversation with other juniors from around the world. Our discussions are held in English and are open to anyone from any country, ethnicity or background.

RACISM & DISCRIMINATION
What are they, and how can we eliminate them from the world?
RULES OF THE DAY
Respect others and their opinions. Do not attack the person when debating their opinion. Be patient, courteous and friendly in your speech.
Understand the logic and viewpoint of the opposing argument, point out where you agree, and then present your perspective and the issues that your opponent perhaps didn't address.
Do research before the debate so that you have something to contribute and share with everyone. This allows everyone to walk away with more than they came with.
WHAT YOU NEED
COMPUTER OR TABLET
CAMERA & MICROPHONE
RELATIVELY QUIET LOCATION
All Discussions are facilitated by experienced & friendly support staff who ensure that everyone has a fair opportunity and that the discussion progresses smoothly.
It is our goal that all participants can contribute to the conversation and learn a variety of perspectives on critical topics of society and the world.
