Debating – the art of persuading others to embrace your ideas – holds a special place in world history. Ancient governments would resort to debates to develop new public policies or solve daily skirmishes. Governance aside, the knack of powerfully articulating your ideas through the use of persuasive words, backed by substantial research is a skill that will open many doors for you. Debato, our debating programme, is founded on enhancing three skills essential for leadership; grammar, logic, and rhetoric (reading, thinking, and speaking). The programme encourages students to think critically on a contemporary topic, examine and structure their argument all under the scrutiny of a discerning audience. Debato is India’s first online debating competition for teenagers and young adults between ages 12 and 19 years.
