Current Affairs Talks

Why?

Current Affairs Talks is the name we give to the sessions of young people aged 28 to 40, from various professional fields, in which we enjoy a conversation about major issues in our society, such as climate change, the digital transition or equal opportunities.

On each occasion we have a social referent which, through a brief initial intervention, sets the starting point for a friendly and thoughtful debate lasting around one hour and fifteen minutes in which approximately twenty people participate.
