Debate is key for a healthy democracy. Respect for different points of view, exchange of ideas and thinking beyond the comfort zone are some of the aspects developed by the practice of debate. Also, debate propels abilities such as teamwork, leadership and problem solving.
Barcelona Debating Society wants to contribute to society improving democracy and teaching kids, young adults and professionals in the art of debate, so that they can acquire valuable skills that they will later apply to their life and career.
Our projects are twofold: university debate and school debate. We offer debate trainings at Universitat Pompeu Fabra and also at high schools that want to innovate their education programs with debate.
