Debating Education

This event is part of the Project Rwanda series - 4 events in 9 days to raise awareness of Debate Camp Rwanda 2013, a 10 day training programme for young Rwandans in public speaking and critical thinking, delivered jointly by CLDS and Idebate Rwanda.

Join us for an interactive panel discussion on the importance of public speaking and debating in education. We have assembled a panel of students, teachers, and campaigners to talk about why debating and public speaking are good for far more than just winning competitions at school.

We will be asking them:

How valuable are public speaking and debating as life skills?

Why is more time and money not invested in supporting schools who cannot afford expensive extra-curricular training and how is this affecting social mobility?

What can we learn from charities about the role of the voluntary sector in plugging this gap?

Come along and ask your questions too

There is no charge for admission to this event, but a donation of £5 is recommended. All proceeds will go to Idebate Rwanda, a student led NGO promoting the value of debating in schools across east Africa.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
