Teenagers all over the world are invited to take part in the New York Times Learning Network’s Civil Conversation Challenge by participating in discussions of big issues dividing Americans this campaign season, such as immigration, climate change, and race, gender, and identity.

“The challenge? We are asking students from all over the nation and, perhaps, around the world, to practice the skills of respectful, informed conversation across ideological and demographic divides by not only posting their own thoughts, but by reading the thoughts of others and replying to them. What we’ll be looking for are not so much excellent posts by individual students, but civil, productive discussions between students.”
