Liskeard Sixth Form debating team had the opportunity to put their skills to the test at a regional forum of the European Youth Parliament in Exeter, alongside other schools from the South West. Students were given issues to research and resolutions to explore leading up to the event and there was an opportunity for all team members to participate and give speeches in the debates, as well as voicing their own opinions. Much to the team’s delight, Liskeard won the competition and advanced to the Nationals.

The Nationals took place in Liverpool, and brought together over 150 individuals from all over the country. This time, students had to prepare their own issues to debate, and present their own solutions and debate them together in the general assembly. The four-day event also had students set up a Euro-Village buffet, where each delegation had to prepare traditional cuisine from a European nation.

Following the Nationals, Liskeard students Josh Conway and Luke Moynan were selected to attend the International Forum in Thrace, Greece, a weeklong event alongside over 150 European debaters. When they arrived they were placed into different committees with a variety of nationalities and instructed to make more resolutions regarding current issues.

Josh and Luke are going to be head organisers for the 2018 regional session in the South West where they started their debating journey with the EYP.
