Current Events Discussions
Submitted by Joseph Sharon <email@example.com> on 23/Apr/2017
In addition to lectures in various subjects of the humanities, Circles Enrichment offers "Current Events" discussions, facilitated by our experienced speakers Paul Dias and Nicole Guerriero.
For each session (1 hour long) 5-6 hot-button topics are selected - things found in newspapers and mainstream websites. So far, topics have ranged from things dealing with the US election, to Brexit, to Trudeau's support for Castro, to the recent issue of tolls in Toronto. Also, because people are often fond of going off the beaten path, we also like to include human-interest stories, new technological innovations, issues affecting the elderly, photos of the week, etc.
These talks are moderated in a way that both encourages residents to voice their opinions while at the same time making sure that everyone is respectful of opposing views. While we've waded into some very contentious subjects, never once has a discussion become heated or hostile. Rather, more often than not, there's a lot of laughter that contributes to a positive, upbeat atmosphere.
