We will once again offer a beginners programme at the start of the winter semester 2018/2019. The programme comprises a series of 7 introductory seminars every Wednesday at 6pm starting from 17 October 2018, followed by our club debates at 7pm (both in German and English). We will also have our annual novice tournament (the "Transrapid-Turnier") on 1 December.
After an incredibly successful year, the new board consisting of Yimin, Florens and Kenno was elected this week. We thank the previous board for their hard work and look forward to another successful year of debating.
The first two weeks of the semester will feature beginners workshops. After that, we will launch a training program consisting of casefile-based seminars and practical exercises. Here's some of what will await you in the coming months:
We are extremely proud to announce that our team, consisting of Melda Eren and Philipp Mueller, broke second to esl outrounds at the WUDC in Mexico! They are the best team from the german-speaking region and both top ten esl speakers! Congratulations!
The upcoming weeks will feature our beginners seminars. Every Wednesday at 6pm, we'll meet in the KHG, Leopoldstraße 11, for a 1h seminar. After that, we'll have our debates. Anyone is free to join!
In the beginning of December, we'll also host our annual novice tournament (the Trans-Rapid-Turnier) for the third time.
Both of the teams we sent to Split Open this year broke. Congrats to Yimin / Valerie for making it into the semifinal, and Melda / Vladi for making it to the final! You never fail to make Munich proud.
After a truly great year with Katharina, Chris and Joachim, our general assembly voted in a new board. Chris remains, becoming president, while Philipp rejoins and Florens joins the board. We look forward to a lovely and successful year of debating!
On November 21st, Philipp R. Mueller from Munich Debating Society took part in a panel discussion hosted by the TUM speaker series. The discussion, which took place in front of an audience of over a thousand, was moderated by Hans-Jürgen Jakobs, senior editor of „Handelsblatt“. Philipp asked Cœuré, member of the ECB executive board, critical questions regarding the EU and ECB. We are once again proud to promote critical thinking and public discourse.
Our debating society will be closed for the coming period because of the current corona pandemic. If you want to participate in our online debates on mixidea, please have a look at our Facebook page. For more information please subscribe to our newsletter.
