November 2020 saw the launch of intensive online training in the art of debate in the partner countries of the Erasmus+  youth debate project Debate Your Issue. Young people in Serbia will soon join their peers in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. Project partners received applications from more than 300 young Europeans, half of whom have been accorded the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills needed by debaters taking on diverse and socio-political issues. The training is scheduled to run until spring 2021, and will be followed by an international competition and a closing conference*.
