Join high school students from around the world this October in The People Speak Global Debates, and your team could win a trip to the 2010 IDEA Youth Forum in the Netherlands! Last year, students from more than 80 countries participated in this international dialogue about climate change.
If your team hasn't participated in previous Global Debates, your team could win six iPod Shuffles. You must participate in order to qualify for this prize, so start planning!
This year’s topic is “When it cannot do both, the United Nations should prioritize poverty reduction over combating climate change.” Find more information on how to register, organize your debate, and plan activities on the website.
