World Online Debating Championships

Debatewise and IDEA are proud to announce the first ever World Online Debating Championship and formally invite you to take part.

This is an innovative competition and presents a new form of debating. 32 countries will take each other on in a knockout tournament open to anyone.

It takes place over the internet so you can participate from any place at any time. You can debate with people from all over the world, and get to understand them better, all without leaving home.

Plus, you have a full 24 hours to perfect your arguments so can craft them to perfection.

The competition is being run by Debatewise in collaboration with the International Debate Education Association; Chief Adjudicator is Neill Harvey-Smith, the Chair of the World’s Debating Council. Round 1 will start on August 10th and the winner will be declared on September 21st.

To find out more, including how to enter, please email or visit and we’ll be delighted to help. The closing date for registration is Sunday 19th July.

Good luck,

David Crane- Convenor, Debatewise's founder and MD
