PROJECTS

Though the primary focus of Debating Matters is the running of our annual UK competition, we are keen to work with others on related projects of mutual interest.

Recently we have worked with the University of Ulster to host a series of stand-alone Debating Matters debates for students in Northern Ireland, have run two successful day-long projects with the Aimhigher Peninsula Programme to run an experimental day of debates for younger students, and launched Debating Matters India in partnership with the British Council India which has just finished its second highly successful year, with over 400 Indian schools taking part across four of the country’s key cities.

Our latest projects are: the Global Uncertainties Schools Network, developed in partnership with the Research Councils UK (RCUK) as part of their ‘Global Uncertainties: Security for all in a Changing World’ programme; and the ‘Changing Age’ event developed in partnership with Newcastle University’s year-long Changing Age programme, looking at the medical, moral and social issues society needs to consider with an aging population. 

If you’d like to work in partnership with Debating Matters, contact the competition’s national coordinator, Justine Brian.
