Classrooms applying and Judges and Volunteers fill in the same online form: http://tinyurl.com/Eracism13-1. We need more classrooms from all over the world to take part!

What teachers said about Eracism 12-2:

Hearing how the other teams debated was fascinating because we learned about how/what other people think about key global issues.
Working with the students in my school in a different context was a spectacular opportunity to know them better.
Loved the whole thing. Despite the amount of work and sacrifice it entailed, it was a ton of fun and our team learned a lot about debating. Next time, we will be more prepared.
The final live debate was a highlight!
This makes learning applicable and real for the students. They no longer care about a grade, but instead want to do well as the world listens in.

That was the first step to molding such abilities of mine as commitment, leadership and dedication - understanding that only hard work and everyday work everyday can bring positive results and achievements. The adaptation period in different…See More
