Second tournament on academic debate
The second tournament was organized by Piligrim-Demo from 22 to 23 October 2016 in Vadul-lui-Voda. The resolution of the tournament was: The dream has to be the main factor in choosing the profession,.
The debate tournament aimed to improve the critical thinking skills of 35 young people from Bender, Cahul, Ceadir-Lunga, Comrat, Tiraspol and Vulcanesti.
“Debate tournaments are very useful when it comes to improving analytical thinking and presentation skills as well as broadening horizons. I am certain that my participation in this training course and the know-how gained will increase my chances of enrolment at university,” said Nikita Konovalov, a high school student from Cahul.
The tournament is organized as part of a one-year project implemented jointly by the OSCE Mission to Moldova and Comrat-based NGO Piligrim-Demo, which aims to actively engage national minority youth in local and national democratic processes by developing their debating skills.
