Training and Workshops
Learn the JCI Way of Debating
JCI Malta is an organisation that is focused on developing its members into future leaders. Knowing how to debate and speak in public is of utmost importance and therefore, we will organising sessions led by fantastic trainers, debaters, and judges. They will ensure that all participants do not only get the necessary skills to compete but also use this experience as a personal development opportunity.
In order to debate in a JCI setting you need to learn the rules that come with it.
JCI Malta will be running a training on the JCI debating rules, how to define a motion, and what the different roles within the teams of 3 entail.
This training is compulsory for all competing teams.
TBCThere are various ways in which one can debate. JCI Malta is organising a day of workshops that will give participants skills in relation to debating skills used by politicians, lawyers and local media. A series of training sessions with professionals coming from different fields where debating is used. Following this training, you will be able to give your debating skills an added level of creativity to secure that your team is the next National Debating Champion for JCI Malta!
Now that you have grasped your debating skills and your team is equipped to take over the debating world, you will get to practise in a Friendly Debating session. Here you can put your skills to test, get professional feedback and work on some last refinements for your team just before the competition!
You’re prepped and ready to take the JCI Malta Inter-Organisational Debating Competition by storm and become the 2021 JCI Malta Debating Champions, while also representing your NGO. The winning team will be winning a fully funded trip costing around €3,000+ where they will get to compete during the European Conference Debating Competition in Bruges, Belgium in 2022.
The winners of the Inter-Organisational Debating Competition will get the honour of representing JCI Malta in Bruges, Belgium during the JCI European Conference to be held between the 8th and 11th June, 2022.
