Youth Initiative

PI JThis project develops the skills of debate from a citizen perspective. Debate teaches young people how to develop their critical thinking, their ability to express themselves, their capacity for independent research, and to discuss topics that affect their lives and communities in an atmosphere of tolerance, rationality and intellectual rigor. Fourteen clubs throughout the country bring together about twenty young people each week, who discuss pre-established themes, prepare tournaments and discuss the economic situation. Young people also initiate debates using new technologies such as blogs or text messages. In 2014, 400 young people attended a consultation on topics such as citizenship, democracy, as well as gender relations or the economy. Their views were published in the book "Paroles de jeunes" published in 2015.
