  • Political debate

    Debate means: Comment on an issue, ponder and convince. Without convincibility, power of expression and expertise, a disputation can’t be won. It requires rhetorical skills and personal lines of reasoning. Only shortly before the debate starts, it’s clear who represents the pros and cons which means the participating adolescents must deal with the two conflicting perspectives beforehand.

  • Photography & Photo Design
