HACIA Democracy

HACIA Democracy is about sending kids to solve real world issues. The bad side to this is our ideas count for squat. The good side is we get to go to Panama to solve the problems. It is to complicated for me to explain how it works but I can tell you it resembles a court room. If you want to know more about the rules and guidelines go here HACIA Democracy. The deserving/lucky students that will be attending are Adriana, Edie, Ganzie, Sang Eui, Amir, Luciano, Brian, Hyun Eui and Gio. These esteemed students were chosen by their abilities in debate club. If you haven't been to HACIA before what do think it would look like? It can't be worse then what I pictured.

  1. I have never gone to Hacia, but I picture a bunch of strangers, looking at you, waiting for you to say something smart.

  2. Nah, I don't think anyone's ideas count for squat, in any moment in time. Your ideas will shape you into the person who you will be. That's a pretty important load that your ideas carry! Sure, in HACIA specifically your resolution papers probably wont be implemented in the outside world, but the beliefs and worldviews that you generate about the world over there will change you as a person, and maybe the exterior world.

  3. I think it would look like if you are on a court. A lot of unknown people looking at you while you debate, and then the judges deciding if you did good arguments. Even if it is like this it must be pretty fun.
