ampa students are invited to participate in World Speech Day 2020 will be held on Monday, March 16th. Speakers from schools, colleges and universities throughout Florida will be joining with speakers from over 100 countries to speak on the topic: “Using the simple power of speech to share ideas.”
World Speech Day was launched by Simon Gibson at the Athens Democracy Forum in 2015. The idea came from Simon’s work in establishing a free database for contemporary and historic speeches. During this work, it became clear that speeches change the world; socially, politically, in the arts, business and religion. They play a profound role in holding our societies together and shaping change. The plan was forming: a day to celebrate speeches and speechmaking through live public speaking events around the world, reaching out to #unexpectedvoices everywhere.
In 2019 more than 100 nations across the globe have been involved in WSD. Schools, universities, speakers’ clubs, think tanks, community groups, companies, NGOs – all holding meetings in classrooms, community halls, even cafes. Proving the unique power of speeches to explore new ideas.
Participation in World Speech Day 2020 is free. Participants will receive a World Speech Day Certificate of Excellence.
