The British Science Association believes that scientific issues that affect us all, like the Ebola outbreak and antibiotic resistance, should be debated by everyone, not just scientists. As part of British Science Week 2015, we held and supported a range of debates on key policy issues across the UK, with local journalists, policy makers, academics and key opinion-formers.
Thursday 27 June:
Oxfordshire Championship at Oxford Union, in partnership with Magdalen College School and Oxford Festival of Arts
Friday 5 July:
North East Championship at Durham Sixth Form Centre
