Global Youth Panel reaches goal of 1,000 members

The Global Youth Panel has reached its target goal of 1,000 members. The group consists of 500 panelists, and approximately 100 country coordinators with five panelists each. Debatewise, IDEA, and the British Council have organized this panel to give young debaters an opportunity to voice their opinions on the issues being raised at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen December 7-18, 2009.

During the conference, panelists will go to Debatewise to respond to motions posed by the issues being discussed at the conference. After the conference, the panel will be divided into their respective countries, and will discuss how the decisions made at the conference will impact them. So this December, visit Debatewise to read opinions from youth around the world. For more information on the Global Youth Panel, click here.
