Chill-Chat

About

NAPI introduces the Chill-Chat series, an ongoing project launched in September 2022 that invites open discussions and coffee talks. Open to the public, with a particular focus on young individuals, the series creates a space where participants can freely share ideas and engage in debates on relevant topics.

These meticulously curated sessions are designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity, fostering an environment where participants can challenge their perspectives and venture beyond conventional thinking. Participants receive certificates of participation and an exclusive invitation to join the esteemed NAPI community.

Facilitated by interested young moderators, Chill-Chat sessions adopt a participatory approach, placing young voices at the core of discussions. Participants are encouraged to think critically and contribute solutions to the themes under consideration. Building on the success of a collaborative with Espace Carmen in 2022, NAPI has also partnered with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung Libya from 2023 to the end of 2024, aiming to organize a total of 15 Chill-Chat events. These events serve as platforms for insightful conversations, fostering connections and diverse perspectives. Join NAPI in this ongoing series and become part of a community that values the perspectives and contributions of the younger generation.
