Exhibition debate in the Churchill Room of Goodenough College, a campus founded in the Victorian era to provide affordable accommodation to international students. The CDC team will debate a team comprised of two Great Debaters Club members and two students. Tuesday 14th March, Churchill Room, Goodenough College WC1N 2AB Notes: CDC selected this motion for two reasons: first it concerns a global phenomenon which is as relevant in India as it is in the UK and elsewhere across the globe, so both teams can draw on examples they are most familiar with from their own countries; second this motion was thought to hold broad appeal to the students at Goodenough College, who CDC team would like to attract in large number.
Public debate in the Tea House Theatre in Vauxhall, the home of the Great Debaters Club, where the CDC team will debate a team made up entirely of Great Debaters Club members. Wednesday 15th March, Tea House Theatre, Vauxhall Walk SE11 5HL Notes: The venue hosting this debate is known for its celebration of the arts - in particular poetry. Hence, the motion is a quote from William Blake's 'Auguries of Innocence' (1836). Once more it was selected because its ambiguity will allow the teams to draw on many different issues from across the world and avoid becoming too UK-centric.
