Welcome to British Debating at Cardff University Debating Society
We are an impartial group dedicated to promoting the discussion of issues and ideas.
Debating is about challenging current ‘wisdom’, existing ideas, beliefs and preconceptions. Debating is not about intensifying or cementing your beliefs, or necessarily changing them. It’s about challenging all opinions through reasoned argument, in a format where you never get to pick your ‘side’.
Not ones to shy away from controversial issues, we hold public events which have included debates on abortion, multiculturalism and British foreign policy towards Hamas.
Within the society, we hold weekly training sessions and workshops. For the more competitive among you there is the opportunity to debate competitively most weekends, often in such exotic and exciting places as Berlin, Paris, Turkey and Manchester. But even if that’s not your thing, feel free to come along, because debate has more to offer.
If you want to become more confident, improve your public speaking and sharpen your skills of analytical thinking, as well as make new friends, come down to one of our meetings. It’s also fun… honest!
We meet every Thursday at 7 pm in the Humanities Cafe in the Humanities Building.
