With nearly 300 members already signed up, The Global Youth Panel is quickly reaching its goal of 1,000 members. Panelists have joined from over 70 countries, and from every continent except Antarctica. Membership is already closed for those who live in the UK, Bangladesh and Indonesia. However, the panel still needs more participants from other countries! Visit Debatewise to register.
The Global Youth Panel is also seeking country coordinators, who will represent their country and get ten friends to participate in this event. There will an extra benefit for these coordinators as well!
Debatewise, IDEA, and the British Council have organized this panel to give debaters an opportunity to have their say on what happens at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December. Members will debate online about issues as they arise, and other members will vote on the points that have been made. The results will be released to the press as an indication of what young people around the world think of decisions made at the conference. For more information, click here.
