Urban Debaters: Next Round – February 2017
Through the Urban Debaters project we will open up the skills of communication and debating in fun but challenging workshops, led by experienced debaters who teach the art and techniques of debating. The project will run twice this year (Lambeth & Southwark) over a five day course, where we pass on the skills necessary to communicate thought, through logical and factual arguments with accuracy and emotional appeal to the audience.
Developing the communication arts of persuasion, debating, public speaking, and ultimately their confidence, the young people will reap the benefits of these transferrable skills across all areas of their lives.
Under the direction of project leaders and youth workers, the young people will first consider/discuss a variety of high interest issues up for debate, list the various people with a stake in the debate and then play the role of one of the stakeholders in the debate itself.
When: February 2017 (half-term)
Where: Clapham 823 Wandsworth Road SW8 3JL and West Norwood Chatsworth Way SE27 9HN
