Café Talk Online Platform Launch

Embassy representatives attended the launch of the Café Talk online platform ( The platform allows participants to join or host café talks in their region while learning about other debates held country-wide. Managed by the International Institute of Debate and funded by the U.S. Embassy, Café Talk has been running since February in ten regions across Tunisia (Bizerte, Gafsa, Kairouan, Medenine, Monastir, Nabeul, Sfax, Siliana, Sousse, and Tunis). Café Talk brings people together for debates in cafés.  Café Talk emphasizes discussions of CVE and youth issues, while providing the basics of debate and communication techniques. To date, 57 café talks have been organized with many more planned.
