Bringing debating skills to Tunisia's young people
Since the Project started in Tunisia 2011, more than 6,000 young Tunisians from different regions of the country were trained in debating skills. 450 debates were conducted through 57 debate clubs to an audience of over 13,000 young Tunisians. The topics of the debates varied from the role of young people in the development of Tunisia to the controversial political situation.
Young Arab Voices - Anna Lindh Foundation
This regional project is funded by the British Government’s Arab Partnership Initiative. Young Arab Voices relies on partnerships with non-governmental organisations, youth groups, culture centres, schools and universities, plus ministries in the targeted countries of Jordan, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.
Andreu Claret, Director Anna Lindh Foundation said:
Young Arab Voices is a pioneering programme. Firstly, in terms of the remarkable reach and impact the programme has already had across the Arab societies – actively engaging many thousands of youth from diverse social, geographical and political backgrounds.
Secondly, in the way that two leading international institutions like the British Council and Anna Lindh Foundation have taken the strategic decision and bold approach to combine together their resources, networks and methodologies.
It is a unique model of partnership in action and an effective response to the historic changes taking place across the MENA region."
