European Universities Debating Championship at the College

The College facilities in Psychico proudly hosted the 21st annual European Universities Debating Championship (Athens EUDC 2019) from August 4 – 10, 2019.  Arguably, one of the largest student events in Europe, it is also one the largest debate meets globally.  More than 650 students from across 32 European nations competed against one another with the aim of winning the title of European Champion.

Following 5 days of arduous competition, the Cambridge University team members were declared winners, whilst those from Zagreb University took the title in the “English as a Second Language” category.

Volunteers working on behalf of the Debating Society of Greece undertook the organization of Athens EUDC 2019, hoping to attract leading young orators to our country. During the event, both the organizers and the young volunteers had an opportunity to enjoy exceptional speeches. Conversely, competitors in the various events experienced Athens and its attractions.

The event was held with the support of PwC as Platinum Partner, Vikos and Interlife as Gold Partners, and Athens College, BCA and Athens University of Economics and Business as Institutional Partners.
