Looking for 16-18 year olds to join the Margaret Quass Debate
The Margaret Quass Debate will take place during the afternoon of 15 December 2010, at the Freemasons Hall, Central London. The Citizenship Foundation is looking for schools who would like to bring groups of five students to take part in this exciting and topical annual debate.
The topic of last year's debate: ‘Can we still be global citizens in a worldwide crisis? Facing the challenges of financial insecurity, global warming and scarce resources together' attracted 50 young people from schools throughout the UK. One of the panel members, Eugenie Harvey, Director of the 10:10 Campaign said, ‘I was astonished by the level of questions. The intelligence and the level of discussion was fantastic. I feel very proud to have been part of it.
The Margaret Quass Debate encourages young people to come together in dialogue with a panel of experts on a current topic. The Citizenship Foundation organises this event on an annual basis in recognition of the work and heritage of the Council for Education in World Citizenship (CEWC) that merged with Citizenship Foundation in September 2008.
To take part in this event please register your interest with Ruxandra Ratiu the International Projects Manager by Monday 19 July 2010.
