3E Citizens

Speaking in public and debating are at the heart of 3E citizens – a set of workshops presented by Aġenzija Zgħażagħ to Year 10 and 11 students. By the end of February 2019, around 1200 students will have participated in this seminar, which takes as its starting point the recent Vote 16 legislation but proceeds by giving the floor to the young people present, asking them to debate points in favour and against current situations.

At first, the young people are generally reticent about their views but in the safe spaces of working in groups, they gradually start becoming more confident about speaking up to agree or disagree according to the collective view adopted on the given situations.
