Debates they are a’ changing

We’ve made a few changes to the competition this year. Among other things, the structure of the league phase has been changed. You’ll find everything you need to know in the Debates section of the site.

Taking a bow

Ok, now it’s slap-ourselves-proudly-on-the-back time. The Concern Debates are 25 years old this year. This means 25 years of getting students to grapple with issues relating to world poverty and development.

During this time, 45,000 students have taken part; that’s an enormous amount of discussion and learning about development. All you debaters, past and present, should feel very proud indeed.
