Our Events

The Canadian International School of Beijing Debate Society and the Association of Global Debate are pleased to invite you to the 1st Annual CISB AGD Invitational Debate Tournament, hosted on October 10, 2015.

It is our hope that this Invitational serves as a fun, relaxed, and collegial start to the debate season for teams across Beijing and North China. We recognize that early in the fall semester is not only the start of a new year for veteran debaters, but is often the start of many novice’s debating careers. With this in mind, the Invitational places a special emphasis on education, with two optional training sessions prior to the start of the tournament.  

The Invitational is a special event for the two co-organizers. The fall of 2015 marks The Canadian International School of Beijing’s 10th anniversary, and to commemorate the occasion CISB opens its doors to debaters from across Beijing and North China, from both international schools and local public schools. CISB very much looks forward to the event, not only as a way to commemorate its anniversary, but also as the beginning of a new tradition. With your support and participation, we will host a fun, logistically smooth, and academically enriching season opener tournament on an annual basis, further contributing to the growth of debate among international and local schools in Beijing and beyond.

The AGD looks forward to providing in-person training on any school campus in Beijing or beyond for any teams or coaches the request the training prior to the start of the competition. The AGD’s team of debate judges and coaches includes a former American national champion, a former coach of the largest debate team in the US, two prolific debate organizers from the London debate circuit, a former Chief Adjudicator of the Australasian Championship, and a former American national runner-up.

A formal invitation letter with full details of the schedule, costs and other arrangements can be found here.
