According to the organisers, the debate competition, held for the first time in 2013, is intended to become an annual event where students are given a platform to explore their skills in debate, elocution and articulation. With a robust team comprised largely of youth, Sano Sansar is geared towards fostering leadership qualities in them and their debate competition is certainly a step in that direction. And even though the concept of ëdebating', especially in the context of a competition, means that not everyone is victorious, all that participated will have certainly earned something valuable through the event.
Are you passionate about changing the course of current global development issues? Are you active in your community?
We are looking for you, youth changemakers around the world, to join us in Indonesia on March 24th – 25th at the Bali Consultation Meeting on the Post-2015 Development Agenda! This is your chance to deliver your perspective as youth in shaping the world’s most pressing development issues to the High Level Panel of Eminent Persons!
Not only you will be able to champion your passion and issues, you will also be able to engage in valuable discussions and as well lobby with high-profile decision and policy makers on what a post-2015 development agenda should be like and how youth, accounting to 43% of the world’s population, should be consolidated into the process.
This is your opportunity as proactive young people to contribute in setting the framework of post-2015 agenda with prominent figures and decision-makers across sectors. As well, it presents a stronger collective force for youth as our participation will ensure that the leaders continue to provide us with the opportunity to collaborate in the long run and held accountable to us as this progress carries on.
