Project "Debate Leader School 2019/2020" is an amazing educational project organized by the Latvian Debate Association "QUO Tu doma?" and supported by the British Council Latvia since 2016. More than 200 students and 70 teachers have already participated in the project. Will you be the next debate leader?
During the project participants get to participate in various lectures and practical workshops, starting with "What is debating and critical thinking?", "What is public speech?", "How to make a good argument?", ending with "Introduction to economics" and "Migration and globalization". Throughout the project, lectures will become more advanced and diverse. Participants are also encouraged to suggest their own ideas on lectures they would find beneficial to have. Working language of the project is English, therefore all participants should have sufficient English language level.
