Debate against other teams from different EUTOPIA universities in the online EUTOPIA inter-university debate

As part of University of Gothenburg’s involvement in the EUTOPIA initiative, the university organizes a number of student seminars. You will be provided a dataset which you should use to make an argument – for or against – and debate with other teams from different EUTOPIA universities. This time the debate will be centered around Covid-19 and students will have to address two out of four possible topics. The debate will be on March 3rd.
Topics
    • Efficacy of masks
    • Vaccines and treatments
    • Testing policies
    • Reliability of reported numbers of death
    • Gravity of the pandemic
    • Are the consequences of the lockdown and social distancing measures worse than the disease itself?
How to sign up
Sign up with your team (3 people max) or individually (you will be assigned to a team, most likely from your institution) before the 5th February. A link to the debating space will be provided to you, as well as a set of documents on COVID-19, and of online resources on argumentation and fallacies.Please sign up here: Data-informed students debate on Covid-19 – Registration form (office.com)
