European Youth Debating Competition
EPCA and PlasticsEurope are giving the opportunity to groups of young students, aged 16 to 19, to debate on chemistry related issues around the overarching theme “50 years of chemical industry. What’s next?” The theme has been transformed into a workable phrase underscoring the industry’s sustainability effort, allowing a pro/con debate and setting the scene; it will be translated and adopted in each country.
"How would you imagine your future – with or without the petrochemical industry and plastics?"
National finals take place from April until September 2016
in 9 countries (Belgium (19/09/2016), Croatia (29/04/2016), France (15/09/2016), Germany (08/05/2016), Italy (27/05/2016), the Netherlands (22/09/2016),Poland (31/05/2016), Spain (05/05/2016), the United Kingdom (05/07/2016))
