Welcome to the first public debate of this semester!
During this event, you will have the chance to watch some of Scandinavia’s best debaters showcase how competitive debating approximately looks like. The format will be slightly adapted to give you the chance to ask the speakers questions and challenge their arguments. The mingle afterwards is a great opportunity to come up with new arguments over a cup of coffee, meet new people or chat with current Lund Debate Society members to hear more about our society.
This event is free of charge and open event to anyone interested!
Visit our Facebook page to see the topic for this evening and attend the event where you can read more about how competitive academic debate works! If there is no event on Facebook, then it means it’s canceled this week. Also, note that the location may change – the Facebook event is where we’ll be for sure.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Debating competitively is not only fun and extremely intellectually challenging, but it is also the most time efficient way to improve public speaking, knowledge about the world and critical analysis of arguments. It also inevitably stimulates the participants to consider the opponents’ standpoint and allows you to explore ideas that you have never before thought about.
