GLOBAL PEOPLE DISCUSSION

Introduction

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.
