50 young people started a two-day training and gained knowledge on life skills, components and actors in communication along with games to promote team building and social revitalization of young people!
Critical thinking teaches youngsters how to define and analyze problems, while avoiding fallacies and cognitive biases. They develop the ability to make very strong and persuasive arguments based on logic and evidence. They are also good at finding and gaps and unwarranted assumptions
n others arguments.
The activity was moderated by the New Vision Executive Director, Armando Bala and speakers with many years of experience in the field of civil society and working with youth. The workshops were interactive and touched a variety of topics. They discussed different topics in order to think critically and based on these topics each group came up with different opinions from the other, there were also objections from other groups which led to a debate. The participants also bonded in team building games and challenges.
Critical thinking is known for encompassing a wide array of disciplines, and cultivating a broad range of cognitive talents. One could indeed say that it’s a cross-curricular activity for the mind, and the mind must be exercised just like a muscle to stay healthy.
The training e
nded with the certification of the participants and with great feedback from them which they described as fun, interesting and inspiring.
Trainings like this are a great tradition for New Vision which have always been appreciated by our members.
