ARCHIVE COMPETITION

Debating Matters UK 2012/13

This year we expand the competition by 50% to allow more schools to experience Debating Matters!

Debating Matters offers a fresh, accessible and engaging format for debating contemporary issues. The competition has successfully pioneered a format for debate that takes ideas, argument and young people seriously. The focus is on content and substance over style, encouraging young people to engage in an intelligent contest of ideas and holding up their ideas to critical scrutiny. 
             
The 2012/13 competition was our tenth year as a national competition, and we were delighted to be able to expand the competition to 12 regions to allow even more schools to experience the uniquely challenging Debating Matters format.
