IDEA Fellows: Debating Europe

Improve your skills in debating European issues in our March training for Coaches. IDEA UK is part of a network of IDEA offices, one of which, IDEA Netherlands, is running a Europe for Citizens debating programme on issues connected to Europe through 2018 and into 2019. IDEA UK is part of it and we want you to take part in it too. While the biggest issue to do with Europe in the UK is Brexit that does not mean that it is what we have to debate – as a EU wide project most participants won’t be debating anything to do with Brexit so there is no obligation for us to do so. As such you will be free to come up with Europe related motions to debate in your clubs.

At the same time this session will as usual be a chance to learn more about debating, our programme, and to discuss how clubs are running.

If you are new to iDebate but are interested in helping out with our programme by volunteering then do come along to our introduction half hour from 18:00-18:30 where we will explain what we do and why you should help out.

When: March 15th from 18:00 (18:30 for those who have come to our sessions before)

Where: Tech City College (263-267 City Road, Islington – closest Tube is Angel)
