Inaugural Round, held March - May 2022
Schools conducted their own dialogue events on
Our Schools Program.
The Dialogues @ School program was launched in 2022 to tackle polarisation at its roots by teaching students life-long skills of discourse, critical thinking, and mutual respect. Students across our 13 pilot schools engaged in thoughtful and expressive discussion on the topic: what’s wrong with TikTok? Themes and highlights of these productive discussions were presented in our Voice of Youth Report to the Speaker of Queensland’s Legislative Assembly on August 11th 2022.
Benefits and motivations for participating included:
Enhancing personal agency and esteem by giving students a voice and solutions-oriented mindset
Improving critical thinking, leadership, and collaboration skills
Supporting teachers to foster a respectful and curious learning environment
Developing the next generation of conscious and engaged citizens
