Green Commando Earth has always worked for the personal development of teenagers and youths. GCE is providing platforms for youths to develop their skills, knowledge, and help them themselves to be a confident and bold person through different programs.
Open debate provides a great opportunity to compare and analyze the ideas and opinions. Green Commando Earth believes this program will help the participants to generate critical thinking, keen listening skills, and insistent speaking on a particular topic.
The debate will provide a long term influence on self-expression that will be useful throughout life. So, during this pandemic struck period GCE hopes to arrange a program to cover and address various primary issues in the discussion.
GCE hopes to nurture rational thinking, citizenship manners, and organization of thoughts, persuasion, and public speaking through the program.
The live session is to be conducted from 7th Bhadra- 13th Bhadra, (23rd -29th August)
The objectives of the competition are:
- To provide a significant training ground to develop the public speaking quality of the participants.
- To generate effective creative thinking into primary issues.
