On November 23 in the Karakol city within the "Youth in Action" project a training course "Methods of advocacy through creativity" was held. During the four-day training participants developed advocacy campaigns using creative approach. Participants learned how to design their ideas through comics, street art installations, music, theater productions, stencils, slogans and puppet (theater dolls).
We started the City and Islington 6th form debate club at the end of September this year. We’ve had seven sessions by now and we have already seen the students come in leaps and bounds, which is always amazing to watch.

All international participants of the IDEA Debate Exchange have now left Sofia. After the final day of the Exchange on Monday the 1st, and sightseeing for some on the 2nd of August, the event is now over. The Exchange ended with a day full of practice: some practiced organising a tournament, others judging, debating or giving workshops. Still others discussed a new plan for cooperation: an international knowledge academy for debate.
Participants at the IDEA Debate Exchange in Sofia have started their final training day today. They are discussing ways to use debate for youth advocacy, and ways to make youth participate more with their projects, but also learn more about advanced training skills, budgeting and coaching.
How do you organise a debate tournament, what is effective pr, how do you judge and what are basic training skills you need? What are good ways to use debate for promotion of critical skills, and how do games and theatre help debate training?These and more were the questions participants grappled with at the third edition of the IDEA Debate Exchange in Sofia.
Participants from all over Europe are gathering today for the start of the third edition of the IDEA Debate Exchange in Sofia.
Do you want to learn how to become a better debate trainer? Do you have ideas how to spread debate to new areas and want to meet others who are working on that? Are you looking for new ideas for debate events, international cooperation or fundraising?
IDEA UK is bringing you the Art & Design for Advocacy Lab first pioneered in Macedonia. Art & Design for Advocacy Lab brings together peer educators, young people, youth workers and educators to experiment together to develop a visual language to communicate their own thoughts, messages and opinions.
Our goal is that participants in this Lab use and pass on these essential skills for advocacy to their peers across the UK. (and have some fun in doing so)
