World Championship organizers, Swedish Schools National Debate Champions, experienced debaters from around the globe. In this event, we offer you an opportunity to witness rhetoric at its best.
This public debate will serve to showcase approximately how competitive debating is done at international competitions such as the World Universities Debating Championship. For this purpose, some of our debaters are going to debate on a topic YOU choose!
This event is free of charge and open to anyone interested!
The way this is going to work is:
1. We will present ourselves and what we do,
2. We will put up the three motions on the screen, which will also be announced here prior to the event!
Everyone in the audience will then use their phones to vote on one motion. The motion with the most votes wins! 🙂
3. The debaters get approximately 10 minutes to prepare for the debate while the audience votes if they currently are ‘For’, ‘Against’ or ‘Undecided’ on the motion.
4. The debate commences. When the last speaker is done, there will be another vote to see which side managed to persuade most people to their side.
There’ll be mingling with snacks and drinks after the debate! For people interested, it will be possible to ask questions to debaters and board members during the mingle.
