The University of Valencia welcomes from the 22nd to the 24th of March the final phase of the Debate League of Secondary School and High School 2023 of the Xarxa Vives d’Universitats. In this new edition there will be 15 teams of students in representation of the universities of the Valencian Country, Catalonia and Andorra.

During three days, a hundred students will participate in this oratory competition that looks to empower the use of words, dialogue and exchange of ideas, as well as creating a space of formation where our language is used. This year, the student body debates about the next question: “Should we regulate social media to fight misinformation?”. A polemical and current topic in which they will have to defend the both positions.

In the final phase of the Debate League of Secondary School and High School, that will take place in the Residence Hall Rector Peset of the University of Valencia, we will find the schools that won the previous local phases, celebrated in the reference universities.

On the deliberation, the jury will decide the winning team, the runner-up, and the best speaker of the league.
