Debate Exchange is bringing young people from different backgrounds together to develop debate skills with the support of a network of trained Debate Team Leaders, fostering listening and understanding through debate and dialogue activities. The central component of the programme is a model of debate whereby participants are first taught to listen, understand and absorb what others in the group are saying before responding to the messages being relayed, rather than reacting to the person, the situation or the assumed context of the arguments put forward.
