LAST COMPETITION

Debating Matters UK 2013/14

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.
