Participants of the project will receive trainings on public speaking skills, during which they will learn to use a variety of speaking techniques and competently defend their point of view.
The new season of the Debuttle youth project has started. Students of the capital’s universities, secondary specialized educational institutions and youth non-profit organizations can pass the selection for participation in it. The children will have a special training program, an off-site forum and an online show. And the leaders of the project will have the opportunity to join the debates with current politicians and media figures.
“Our project plans to open discussion platforms in Moscow universities and colleges so that every young person has the opportunity to try his hand at debates. In the first season, the project worked only online, and participants from the capital’s educational institutions only came to our studio. Today, the opportunity to hold face-to-face events is gradually opening up, we do not want to miss it. Debate is a place where speakers must meet face-to-face and face each other when arguing. At the same time, all measures of epidemiological safety will be followed, ”notes the project manager Vladislav Fedotov.
In 2021, the project will be implemented in stages. From February to April, participants will receive online shows, trainings and thematic master classes on the network. From April to May, as well as throughout the fall, events will take place at metropolitan universities and colleges, and in the summer the project will move to city sites, such as parks. The cycle will end with a large visiting forum for the best participants. It is scheduled for December (subject to stabilization of the epidemiological situation in the city).
All information about recruiting new members can be found on the official pages of the project in in social networks.
Debuttle is the eighth project of the Moscow Youth project office. It was launched in December 2020 as part of the online marathon “You are in Moscow” and became a platform for controversy for young speakers. It is distinguished by the atmosphere of real debates and Internet shows. More than 100 experts and participants – representatives of educational institutions and NGOs of the city, bloggers and media people – took part in the project, and its online broadcasts gained more than one million views.
