Etis debating team visits Tampere

On 18.-19. January the Etis Debating Team participated in the Tampere 2020 National Schools Debating Championship, where they had the opportunity to exchange views about topical issues such as the killing of Qassem Soleimani and the reintegration of Finnish ISIS members in Al-Hol. Despite a close loss in the fourth round resulting in the team failing to break into the semi-finals, each member found the experience rewarding. “The only way to critically examine your own beliefs is through familiarity with logical reasoning and debate,” explained speaker Niki Kiiskinen. Teammate Eric Zhuang agreed: “There’s an open-mindedness that you only really get from being forced to take stances you disagree with.” Emphasizing that high school debate has an exceptionally low barrier to entry, the team recommended that anyone wanting to improve their speaking skills try it out. “Just give it a toss!”
