You might be wondering: what makes you so great? We didn't come up with the name we inherit it from The Great Debaters Morocco which is an NGO founded in 2009. Their story started from ENIM Univ in 2008, after watching the famous movie "great debaters", the art club got inspired and organized an actual competition against INPT Univ. The rest is history (ENIM won that debate if you're curious !).

We share the same goal: learning, because that whenever someone feels stuck the others will be there for him/her. Either by giving instructions concerning the rules or just by encouraging members to participate & express their opinions.
We give lectures in debate formats, communication, convincing and public speaking.
We discuss the subjects that concern us as teenagers, students, citizens & humans.
And of course, almost every single session is a debate session.
It is the most used format in international and national debate competitions and it is dedicated especially to university students. This format consists of 4 teams, each team has 2 members. The 1st and the 2nd team are the opening government and the closing government, which by default should support the motion. The 3rd and the 4th team are the opening opposition and the closing opposition, which by default should go against the motion...
