Nordic SDC, Denmark

From Friday 23 February 2018
To Sunday 25 February 2018

We are incredibly excited to announce that the second edition of Nordic Schools Debating Championships 2018. The tournament will take place February 23rd-25th at Gefion Gymnasium in Copenhagen, Denmark! Last year we had debaters and judges represented from 15 different countries, and this year we hope to see an even greater variety of people! 

Look forward to three days with debates against teams from all around the world, adjudicated by some of the best judges in the world (whom we’ll announce over the coming weeks). This is an ideal chance for your school and/or team to try debating for the first time, or for the more experienced teams to get off-season practice for WSDC.

We’re extremely excited about hosting the second edition of NSDC, and we hope that many of you will join us in Copenhagen this coming February!
