The Anna Lindh Foundation is participating in a consortium of leading partners to deliver Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange, a new strategic project supported by the European Commission. Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange provides an accessible, ground-breaking way for young people to engage in intercultural learning. Working with youth organisations and universities, the programme is open to any young person aged 18-30 residing in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean.
Within this pioneering project, the “Debate Exchange” activity brings young people from different backgrounds together to develop debate skills with the support of a network of trained Debate Team Leaders, fostering listening and understanding through debate and dialogue activities. The central component of the programme is a model of debate whereby participants are first taught to listen, understand and absorb what others in the group are saying before responding to the messages being relayed, rather than reacting to the person, the situation or the assumed context of the arguments put forward.
How can you join the activity?
