Young Parliamentarians

WHAT IS YOUNG PARLIAMENTARIANS?

Young Parliamentarians #ejjewniddibattu is a non-formal education programme for students in Years 9, 10 and 11 leading to an interschool debating tournament. It is run by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ’s youth workers in 2 phases. During the first phase, participants are equipped with skills to present their ideas, petition for their approval and how to draft recommendations ahead of the #ejjewniddibattu tournament. Some of these recommendations will be used during Phase 2; the debating tournament. Different school teams will take part in a debating tournament, with the winning team receiving the Young Parliamentarians trophy and a prize money of €750 and the runners up Eur 250. A trophy will also be awarded to the best debater.

Who is it For?

Senior school students in Years 9, 10, 11 are eligible to participate in this programme after forming a team of 4-6 students.

What will it do for me?

Apart from gaining skills in public speaking, pitching of ideas, lobbying and debating, you will increase your  awareness of responsible citizenship and become inspired to take an active interest in democratic processess.
