KTU Debate club, created in the autumn 2012, is an international organisation, uniting the students of all faculties, majors and study cycles, who wish to discuss and defend their opinion on various subjects and who like to spend their free time in a productive way. The members of the Club meet regularly; the meetings are used for development of information analysis, rhetoric, argumentation, persuasion, team work and other necessary skills.
KTU Debate Club participates in national and international debate tournaments (we have already participated in: MRU IV, LIMUN Kaunas Open), and takes part in creating and implementating of various projects in cooperation with other organisations.

  • Debate is an argument on a pre-planned topic in accordance with determined rules. Debates are run in so-called British Parliamentary format (as the form of debates is based on the example of British Parliament): four teams of two people try to prove that their position on a certain subject is right, based on their experience and personal knowledge. Debates are conducted in English.
    Debates develop ability to present arguments in a suitable and logical manner, to speak publicly; also people learn to gain versatile approach towards controversial political, social and cultural subjects. Whereas only a rational argument is acceptable in debates, students learn to have an objective approach towards things, their tolerance to opponent point of view is encouraged.
    Participants of debates take the view that “everything is debateable”. Therefore, nothing is self-evident, even obvious truths can be disputed, which broadens horizons and promotes critical thinking.

Would You like to join? Do not be shy. Your wish to debate on various subjects is all that is needed. Contact us and try yourself.
