It is a crucible where debaters are transformed into articulate and persuasive communicators. Immersed in an environment of intellectual stimulation, participants engage in thought-provoking debates, exchanging ideas and building valuable relationships. Here, debaters hone their critical thinking skills, develop empathy for diverse perspectives, and cultivate the confidence to stand tall and defend their convictions.

The Asia Pacific Debate Championships - Asian 3v3 Debate has been a game-changer for me. Participating in this annual event opened up a world of intellectual excitement and friendly competition that I never knew existed. The format challenges us to think on our feet, collaborate with teammates, and engage in meaningful discussions.
