From Bassanese Teenagers to the World's Youth
What is Econnected?
Econnected is an ENTER’s English and International Version of the Portuguese Debates “Econectados” created in 2020 by Somos Natureza.
- They are composed by 4 Videocall Meetings divided in two time periods. During the first part (50 min) a Presenter opens officially the debates educating both the chairs and the debaters about a polemic environmental topic. The Videocall continues with a 40 min session of active debates, managed by the Chairs (all of them are bilingual) who provide for a positive climate in between students and triggers them to continue the session.
- This activity can be considered an honor extracurricular in your College applications.
- There will be certificates of participation for those who is present in at least 3 of the 4 meetings.
We do not require any sort of fees from participants and candidates. This extracurricular activity is completely free.
Participating in Econectados gave me a perspective of the world that I never had before. In this way, I was able to grow and gradually learn about the socio-environmental setting. So in 2020, I was invited to be part of the team, and since then I decided to help the Somos Natureza with the purpose of bringing this experience to more Teenagers.
