Youth learned about argument based presentation through the debate

After a series of training sessions on interculturalism, conducted by the Centre for Civic Education (CCE) in gymnasiums in Kotor, Bijelo Polje and Podgorica, the selected 12 most prominent debaters competed today in Podgorica, with the winning team also receiving a cash prize.

When creating the teams that participated in the debate, care was taken to ensure that these teams were heterogeneous, composed of participants from different cities, contributing to networking and collaboration among young people from different parts of Montenegro.

I am grateful for the opportunity I had to participate in the debate with my peers on the topic of interculturalism. This is an unforgettable experience, as I could discuss the themes and goals we stand for. I am really glad to see that there are more peers interested in similar topics like me,” asseses Mara Rakčević from the winning team, which also included Anđela Grujić and Anja Malesić.

The aim of the debate competition was to encourage constructive communication among young people with opposing views, providing them with the opportunity to express their opinions in a peaceful and reasoned manner, and thus learn about dialogue and peaceful conflict resolution.

The participants in the debating competition were Lola Marković, Marija Adamović, Anja Malešić, Mara Rakčević, Mia Raičević, Anđela Grujić, Jovan Joksimović, Nikoleta Stanković, Ana Pepđonović, Daria Sizova, Romina Racković, and Doris Dajković.

This debate competition is part of the project “Bridges of Multiculturalism through Museum Education,” implemented by the CCE with the financial support of the Ministry of Human and Minority Rights (MHMR).
