Do you want to learn how to become a better debate trainer? Do you have ideas how to spread debate to new areas and want to meet others who are working on that? Are you looking for new ideas for debate events, international cooperation or fundraising?

With a debate on the topic “This house believes that same sex couples should be allowed to adopt children”, today at the Technical University in Sofia, Bulgaria, the national debate tournament "SDA Open 2013" was officially open.
The tournament is composed of 24 teams with 2 representatives each, which will compete for two first and second prizes and the award for best speaker through a preliminary phase, quarter final, semi final and final.
