YFS Series Event #1

Our first YFS Series event of the 2018-19 season tackled the issue of Free Speech. In an era dominated by fake news, universal truths seem more elusive than ever; freedom of expression is firmly under the microscope.

 Our panel comprised: Pedro O. (G9) Liya B. (G11) Isaac G. (G11) Zhi-Feng O. (Alumni) Mr. McCowan (Faculty)  Student moderators: Bee F. (G10) Tao S. (G10)

On the 18th of June 2018, the YFS Team organized a student and faculty panel discussion focused on questions including:

  • How free is Free Speech?

  • What does Free Speech really mean?

  • Should people be able to say what they want, when they want?

  • Do people have a legal right to be offended?

The discussion was supported by breakout sessions facilitated by the YFS Team who led fellow students through a detailed investigation into this highly relevant topic.
