Grand debate: climate crisis
mer. 28 novembre à 18:45
Grand Debates are special. You get the exact motion in advance so that you can pick a side and prepare as a team. If you want and can commit to take part, please leave a comment below. Tell us whether you want to speak for the government or opposition.
—— Hurricanes in the USA, historic flooding in Italy, ruined lambic production in Belgium - the continued rise of global temperatures has dramatic effects. What is the solution to the climate crisis? Join us right before the COP24 in Poland and hear two totally opposite schools of thought. The motion is “This House would solve the climate crisis by investing more in innovations”. The government, representing technologists, believes human ingenuity is our last best hope. The opposition, representing environmentalists, want to protect the planet and people by reducing consumption. You can choose a side and prepare your speeches with the rest of the team. Each speaker has 10 minutes to make his/her case. The format is 4 vs 4. If you do not want to argue for either side, don’t worry. You can always observe and ask challenging questions from the floor. All feedback is valuable. The venue is fully accessible for wheelchair users. All levels of experience are welcome - from first-timers to experienced debaters.
