October is Black History Month. In order to celebrate this IDEA UK's debates in Colleges and Schools that make up the World Debate Club will be focused on race and human rights. We will acknowledge and celebrate the inspirational civil rights struggle and discuss how to challenge ongoing racism in society today. What is more it is the 30th anniversary of Black History Month in the UK and we want you to lead our clubs in joining in the celebrating of this event to inspire and encourage anyone in the black, asian and minority ethnic community.
In our monthly fellows training we will discuss questions of race and equality. Our fellows will learn about the topic to help in delivering in the world debate clubs. There will also be opportunities to share ideas and best practice with your peers.
