The International Exchange in Athens will bring together youth from over 16 countries in Greece to debate European-wide issues, share experiences, cultures, and improve the art of activism and debate amongst them.

This Exchange is part of the international project "Creating Critical Minds and Voices in Europe", a project where debate events aimed at improving the rhetorical, critical thinking, and intersubjective comprehension skills of participating youth. This project is made possible thanks to support from Europe for Citizens.

The IDEA Debate Exchange 2017 will be held in Turku from August 21 until August 28. The IDEA Debate Exchange aims to increase cooperation between student debate organisations in Europe and to strengthen their organisations, their reach and effectiveness. The participants exchange experiences and practices based on their work in different countries. More information can be found here
