“INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DEBATE”
“International Youth Debate” is a debating competition for young people from ten Central and East European countries. The competition encourages critical interest in human rights and their historical development, and strengthens debate as a medium of political culture and democratic participation. In order to promote knowledge of German in the participating countries, the competition is held in German. Since April 2017, the country winners are being determined in the ten participating countries. The highlight of the year is the international final, in which the best two teams from each country compete against each other.
