Primary Goal

OUR NEW SCHOOLS PROGRAM

Dialogues @ School is a significant civic and pedagogic initiative to stimulate collaborative discussions on complex topics among teenagers and school communities. The program is intended to encourage civic-mindedness and civil discourse amongst students and demonstrate within school and local communities what genuine dialogue looks like.

  • Schools conduct their own dialogue events on a youth-focused topic, with guidance and support from The Brisbane Dialogues

  • Dialogues are held between student panellists and a moderator provided by The Brisbane Dialogues

  • Each school produces a video recording of their event, from which a highlights package is produced by The Brisbane Dialogues

  • We also distil insights from the dialogues into a report on “The Voice of Youth” on the topic

  • The video and report are publicised and presented to parliaments by students 

  • There are no fees or charges for schools or students to participate, but wealthier schools are encouraged to make a contribution to enable scaling the program nationally and it would be appropriate if any revenue raised from ticket sales or local sponsorship were shared with The Brisbane Dialogues
