Jeroen's workshop: How to OG
From 19:00 Monday, November 27
To 20:30 Monday, November 27
At T3-16

Description and links
Starting the debate as opening government can be difficult at times: less preparation time to present your arguments while defining the motion with few chances of rebuttal. In order to make it a bit easier for the OG teams, there will be an OG workshop on 27th November by Jeroen Heun!

Jeroen Heun is an old legend at EDS. Back in his day, he has won numerous tournaments such as Oxford IV, Manchester IV, Berlin IV, Utrecht and Nijeronde. Jeroen also was the best speaker at 13 tournaments, including one EUDC. He currently has ten years of experience as a trainer in effective and persuasive communication, meaning that you can learn a lot from him. So if you want to win debates as OG, make sure to attend the workshop!

Latest updates

Welcome to the website of the Erasmus Debating Society. EDS is an independent Rotterdam-based debating society, the oldest in the Netherlands. Founded in 1989, it has become one of Europe’s most successful and well-known debating societies. The Erasmus Debating Society is the best place for all people to learn how to speak confidently, give thorough analyses on all subjects and most of all: how to have fun while debating! We are an open and informal society with most of our members being students at Erasmus University. Because we have many international members our weekly debating evenings are generally conducted in English. We pride ourselves on being a big family for all those who share our passion for speeches, on being the best thing that ever happened to those people who at first did not yet feel like they were confident speakers.

Students and debaters

Every Monday we have a debate evening consisting of two debating rounds and a social drink afterwards. These evenings are held in the Mandeville building room T3-16 on Campus Woudestein at 18:30. Besides our regular debates on Monday we travel around the world for competitions, organize various workshops to improve your skills, and have fun at many amazing socials. You can check out the Facebook plugin on this page for updates and upcoming events. Note that our social events don’t show up there as they are handled in a private group.

Other societies

As one of the Erasmus University student organizations we are always open to a collaboration with other societies. In addition we offer training related to debating, critical thinking, and public speaking. More information can be found here.

Companies and organizations

Being a successful debating society we offer training by European debating champions. This can be public speaking, critical and analytical thinking, or specific training for debating. More information can be found here.
