Debating is fun and useful and, arguably, good for you. If you're interested, the easiest way is to show up in the weekly meeting and have a look. We continuously have new people coming in and out so you don't have to be afraid. The first timers will always be partnered up with a more experienced debater to get an easy start. Also, it's not mandatory to debate - you can only watch if you want. See more benefits on the About debating page.
Anyone can join. All our meetings are held in English, so both Finnish and international students are more than welcome to our meetings. It doesn't matter who you are, where you are from, how old you are or what you are studying - having people with different backgrounds and point of views makes the debates all the more interesting, so if you are interested, please don't hesitate - we'll be happy to welcome you to our club!
We aim for accessibility for everyone and equality between everyone. About any concerns, please contact us in person at the meetings or email jyvaskyladebatesociety [at] gmail.com.
We don't have any membership fees, participating in the weekly meetings is free for everyone.
