Event Details

 The Great Debate tour 2017 

The Great Debate Tour is the first national debate forum targeting cultural communities on University campuses across the UK. The tour, now in its 8th year, is a celebration of diversity and heritage as well as a forum for powerful, thought provoking discussion. With the help of a panel of experts, university students are encouraged to explore issues that our research indicates is most relevant to the audience. Each debate takes place as a question time style event. The debates have been featured in local and national media, with coverage on Sky Channel 218 and BBC stations. This year will see us partner with over 30 universities, creating larger debates with universities combining. We are also official Parliament Week partners.

 We have had a number of public figures participate at our events over the years, including George the Poet, Akala, Apprentice finalist Bianca Miller, and the winner of the voice Jermain Jackman. Parliamentarians on previous panels include Shadow Cabinet Member Diane Abbott, Housing Minister Alok Sharma, and Treasury Select Committee Chair Nicky Morgan. 

The topics included in this year’s campaign will be Ethnic Britain, Grenfell (the root causes) and BME representation. We will be exploring talking points in relation to these issues over the last year.
