The Forum intends to achieve its goals by delivering a wide range of high quality debate learning programs which lead to promoting the culture and use of debate, open dialogue and discussion as effective academic and personal development skills amongst High School and University Students.
The Forum aims to produced a highly qualified, competitive and socially adept students who excel in both local and global societies. We expect schools and universities to consider the importance of debate as a subject and life skill that significantly improves students’ ability to communicate better, to make informed choices, and to actively contribute to the development of their society.
