Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, through its Centre for International Solidarity (CeSI), promotes the initiative “EXPONI le tue IDEE!”, promoted by WeWorld Onlus as part of the project “End Climate Change, Start Climate of Change”, co-founded by the European Commission within the DEAR Prorgamme. The initiative focuses on climate change and environmental protection global issues. Several Italian and European Universities, together with Università Cattolica, are joining the competition.
The initiative aims at spreading the culture and the practice of educational debate on issues of global interest, encouraging the positive discussion of different point of views, promoting the study and the research on complex issues that can only be addressed through the adoption of a multidisciplinary approach.
The Centre for International Solidarity addresses the project to all the students and consists in a debate contest between different teams that will compete in front of a qualified jury, debating on climate change, environmental protection and migration flows issues. The competition starts with a tournament within each participating University. The winning team of each University will compete with the other Universities’ teams in the regional play-offs and will have the opportunity to participate in the national finals.
