Debating is not just about practicing your public speaking skills. It’s also about competition, having fun, challenging yourself, learning new things, and lots of travel! Joining international debating tournaments is a truly amazing experience. At every tournament you’ll enjoy the company of not just the great EDS delegations, but also the many debaters from all over the world. You can meet some of the best debaters and public speakers, compete with them and learn from them. In addition to this you get to travel around the world and spend your spare time exploring the cities in which tournaments are usually held.
Check out some of the amazing places EDS teams and judges have traveled to so far in the year 2016 – 2017.
If you want to join a tournament as either a judge or debater feel free to ask around on Monday evenings or in the Facebook group. Same goes for finding a team partner, or actually figuring out which tournaments are available. You can also always send an email to the board.
