Let's Talk About It
TABLE OF CONTENTS
A big part of education is having access to new ideas and perspectives. The aim of “Let’s Talk About It” is to open a wider view for the students, in all aspects, whether it be specific subject matters, useful tips, global citizenship, values etc. The talk is focused on giving students an opportunity to listen to amazing individuals with good ideas, experiences, and perspectives to share. It is a means for students to be able to use this opportunity as an inspiration for their self-growth.
