The purpose of the society is to encourage critical thinking among its members while honing their public speaking and argumentative skills via competitive and formalised debating. Members learn to express themselves clearly and cohesively in English and to discuss a wide range of social, political and economic issues, thus gaining greater awareness of the world’s burning issues. The Society meets weekly in the form of workshops in preparation for debating competitions in which members regularly take part, both in Hungary and abroad. It organises the national qualifiers of the two most prestigious high school debating competitions hosted by the University of Cambridge and Oxford, Oxford Schools and International Competition for Young Debaters.
