Do you want to go in-depth into interesting social, moral and political questions and learn how to express your thoughts in an eloquent and convincing fashion?
In Debating we train to construct complex arguments and combine them with smart rhetoric, gesticulation and mimicry. We debate in the formats British Parliamentary Style and Offene Parlamentische Debatte, in all of which you have seven minutes time to represent your side in a speech.
In our Newsletter we inform you weekly about upcoming Trainings and Competitions.
Our topics cover everything from current questions about international relations to fundamental ethical debates. These are some topics we've already debated:
At Competitions, members of all clubs and countries meet to debate and socialize.
We regularily participate in competitions, both german and international. Competitions are an unique opportunity to improve your debating skills and become a part of the debating community.
Everyone can participate in competitions, independent from previous debating experience. If you're interested, contact us!
