The Debate Club Zürich was founded in 2010. We have since grown to become the largest debating society in Switzerland. Our members come from both ETH Zurich as well as the University of Zurich. We are a commission of VSETH (the ETH student union) and a member of VSUZH (the student union of the University of Zürich).

We are internationally connected with other debating societies, particularly with the German-speaking “Verband der Debattierclubs an Hochschulen” (VDCH), an umbrella organisation for over 70 German-speaking debating societies.
