NYC Debate Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

Hi Everyone, Both newcomers and experienced debaters are welcome to join. We meet at a table in the Sony Public Atrium on Madison between 55th & 56th St. There will be a sign displayed on the table so you can find us.

The typical meeting is structured as follows:

  • Introductions
  • Overview of debate format
  • Break into two teams
  • Team brainstorming
  • Initial arguments and introduction of topic from each team
  • Each team makes a point or counters the other team's point
  • Conclusion from each team

After the debate, there will be time for feedback.

Join or login to comment.

    Hey all! I think it is a great idea that you guys origanized this meetup! I am wondering if we are able to know the topics ahead of the time so that we can prepare something before we go, it 's kind of difficult to come up ideas immediately... what do you think?

      Once a month, maybe more if you demand it. Open to trying new venues too, if you know any other venues.
