Welcome to the website of the Erasmus Debating Society. We are the oldest and largest international debating society of the Netherlands. The Erasmus Debating Society is the best place for all people to learn how to speak confidently, give thorough analyses on all subjects and most of all: how to have fun while debating!
We pride ourselves on being a big family for all those who share our passion for speeches, and on being the best thing that ever happened to those people who at first did not yet feel they are confident speakers.
We offer activities and services for:
- Students: Every Monday we have a debate evening consisting of two debating rounds (18:45 T3-16) and a social drink afterwards. Besides that, we have social activities which can be checked under events as well as tournaments that can be found under society and events. These tournaments take place all over Europe and will offer you an amazing experience.
- Other societies: As one of the Erasmus University student organizations we are always open to a collaboration with other societies. In additions we offer trainings related to debating and public speaking.
- Companies/organizations: Being a successful debating society we offer training by European debating Champions. This can be public speaking, analytical thinking or specific debating training.
Please take a look at our website to get an impression of our society.
