Description

Democracy Debate 4.0 - Global Problem Solvers will combine aspects of Future Problem Solvers, Model Congress, and Model United Nations in Democracy Debates MOST-ADVANCED-level debate/diplomacy experience. Global Problem Solvers will feature Trade simulations that teach some of the basics of Economics such as the role of Tariffs, Sanctions, Subsidies, and the differences between Restricted-Trade, Free-Trade, and Fair Trade. Global problem solvers will grapple with real-world problems aimed at generating sustainable solutions to International Trade Wars and the Climate Change Crisis. Small-group delegation teams representing different NATIONS will be judged not only on how well they compete to be the best problem-solvers but also how well they collaborate with other INTERNATIONAL DELEGATES to merge GLOBAL solutions and recruit support for their resolutions -- just like they are supposed to do in the UNITED NATIONS and Paris Climate Summit! Our young GLOBAL-citizen-leaders will be learning how to solve problems and create/pass UN RESOLUTIONS related to current, red-hot topics/pressing questions such as, "How can global powers balance Fair trade with Capitalism? How should the UN respond to the pandemic and climate change crises? 

There will be a 15 minute snack break between 10:30-10:45 am every day. *Program will take place via Zoom & Google Classroom, instructor will email links prior to the first day of camp.
