Welcome to join us for the next virtual debate! Through debating you can practice your argumentation, logical reasoning, problem solving and communication skills – all needed in any position in working life! Persons who have clicked ”Join” will receive a Teams invite the latest on the day of the event. 

The JCI Capital Area Debating Club is open for all JCI members and trial members of the capital area chambers – also visitors from other chambers are welcome especially now that we are meeting virtually!

The purpose of the club is to practice debating together. There will be a short presentation of the rules in the beginning of each session for new joiners and debating exercises for oldies before we start with the actual debate. The language (Finnish/English) will be decided based on the participants of a specific session.

The club gathers together once a month and the time for the next session is agreed in the previous session. Participants can join for a specific session or choose to practice their debating skills in a more regular manner joining the monthly sessions.

Motions are brainstormed together and the day’s motion is chosen randomly. The roles of the chairperson, judges, timekeeper and debaters (captain, 1st speaker, 2nd speaker) are chosen randomly and depending on the amount of the participants – however in such a manner that over the course of the time all participants get to practice each role.

Through having practiced debating skills among the members of the capital area, a long-term goal of the club is to have a Finnish team winning the JCI European or World Championship in Debating by 2023.
