YFS Series Event #2
Our second YFS event of the 2018/19 season unpacked the current state of Democracy worldwide, and how sustainable the system of government will be in the coming decades. Our world is undergoing rapid change. With climate change, mass migration, fake news, and resurgent nationalism on the rise, are our political systems and ideas up for the challenge?
A panel of 6 students from AP and IB politics classes debated and discussed these questions in front of the 11th and 12th grades, on a panel moderated and prepared by students and teachers from the YFS series team. The 40-minute panel was followed by 15 minutes of questions from the audience, directed to the student panel.
