Since 2012, we provide debate and public speaking trainings and club meetings for the alumni of "Cantemir Vodă" National College. Within one year or less they can speak for 8 or more minutes on controversial topics of general importance and within 4 years, they usually get admitted to top international universities, one of the reasons being the personality they develop because of debating.
Yearly, we bring together more than 30 debate clubs and more than 1600 highschoolers and university students to debate and share experiences at one of our 4 traditional events: CDX, NextGen, CeDeBePe and Spring Camp. They get to research and think about topical subjects, debating in teams of three speakers.
Our students are among the most persuasive public speakers or debaters in Romania, in the last 6 years of activity winning 10 national tournaments. Moreover, some were selected to take part in the National Team of Romania for WSDC, the most prestigious worldwide highschool debate tournament.
Through the nature of our training, we aim to build characters that focus on logic and facts, influencing them to be the next pillars of our society and developing key traits such as persuasion, team work, leadership and responsibility which are seldomly thought in the Romanian pre-universitary education system, but are essential to the evolution of our society.
We're a team of university students that share their know-how as certified trainers by ARDOR, the nationwide NGO regarding debate and public speaking. Through ARDOR and the sustained relationship with nationally recognized professors of "Cantemir Vodă" National College, we aim to share our knowledge and prepare the next generation for any challenge.
