'Your Country Needs You – Can Young people change the country’s future?'
Ahead of the Thessaloniki European Youth Capital 2014 year, the British Embassy in Athens is organising a debate at Thessaloniki Municipal Council Hall on Wednesday, 13 November 2013 at 4.30, open to the public.
Four young speakers from UK and Greece, Natalie Robinson – UK Young Ambassador, Sophie Rodgers – UK Young Ambassador, Ioannis Konstantinidis – Assistant Professor of Politics at Macedonia University and George Georgiadis – businessman and member of NGO ‘Kids in Action’, will debate young people’s participation in politics and their opportunity to shape the future of their country and Europe.
The audience will then participate in a discussion with the panel. A vote will follow.
The debate will be in English with simultaneous interpretation in Greek and will be open to the public (entrance free). The journalist Christina Tachiaou will moderate the discussion.
The event is organised in collaboration with Thessaloniki European Youth Capital 2014 and is part of the ‘DEBATE is GREAT’ series run by the British Embassy.
