Dear friends of debating,
two weeks ago the final of the debate competition took place at EPM Zagreb. 4 teams debated against each other on the proposal “This house believes that national referendums should be forbidden in representative democracies”. It was a very intense and complex debate. After the debate, the four judges Ivan Bielik, Eyrin Kyriakidi, Bálint Toronyai and Dorothea Harles announced the winners of the competition, the new proud owners of the two Interrail tickets: Domen Brus and Alvaro Gonzales. The team was chosen because of their in depth analysis of the topic and the comprehensibility of their speeches. Watch the detailed results here. If you missed EPM and want to know what a debate looks like, take a look at the webpage where you can watch and listen to one deba...Read More

Last summer (2016) AEGEE-Warszawa hosted the whole Civic Education Working Group to provide a SU about Civic Education; “Get Civic, Get Educated”. The training were creative, full of fun. Given the passion of the trainers, the session were a real pleasure. Often the conversation continued outside the workshops around some local delicacies. It was an amazing experience that had a great impact on all the participants. We all came back with the envy to know more about the current world but also with the will to find concrete solutions to the multiple current world crisis.
It is up to us to grab the opportunity to become actors of a positive change. If you want to be the local hosting the CEWG ? Just contact us : firstname.lastname@example.org
