The 2019 marks the 25th year of the debate programme in Latvia. Our member the “Debate Center” has been organizing for 25 years debate tournaments for young students by using Karl Popper debate format. In order to raise our competitiveness, this year has marked transition to World School Debate format.
Therefore in September debate seminars for students and teachers that focused on acquiring the World Schools Debate format were organised in Liepaja and Cesis. Moreover, during the seminar teachers shared their experiences and learned about debate methods and tools that can be used to enhance efficient learning process. During the event, novice debaters were debating on “This house believes that youth can critically evaluate influencers' lifestyle.” Meanwhile, debate coaches were training their skills in judging.
