From Bassanese Teenagers to the World's Youth
What is Econnected?
Econnected is a Series of International Environmental Debates organized by ENTER International and Projeto Somos Natureza, where young leaders can develop their Critical thinking skills while learning more about the Climate Crisis.
The Event consists of 3 Video Call conferences/debate sessions divided into two time periods. During the first part ( 30 min ) a guest speaker officially opens the debates by sharing key concepts for both chairs and debaters on a controversial environmental topic.
The conference will continue with a 50 min session of active debates, managed by the Chairs (all bilingual) who will provide for a positive atmosphere among the students and encourage them to continue to debate.
We do not require any sort of fees from participants and candidates. This extracurricular activity is completely free.
