How can debating help create more active citizens? An event at the Royal Society of Arts.

 I will be giving a talk and leading a discussion at the Royal Society of Arts, 8 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6EZ, at 1 pm on Friday 19th July. I'll talk for about 20 minutes about:

  •  the challenges facing the promotion of active citizenship.
  • what active citizens would look like.
  •  how debating in schools can help to promote active citizenship.
  • possible further strategies for promoting active citizenship.

There'll then be about 30 minutes for discussion.

I hope we can use the event to discuss how we can further promote both debating and active citizenship.

More details here.

Entry is free - I hope you'll be able to join me!
