The contest is organised by the Students’ Association for public affairs to help university students think about current issues of economy, culture, environment, and effective ways to build a harmonious society.
Contestant teams will be assigned different roles as the government, the public, NGOs, experts and so on, and will construct arguments as advocates or opponents of a given policy. They will think and deal with the policies according to the interests of the parties they play and consider the cases from the perspectives of other teams. While consensus within groups on basic issues should be made before the contest, throughout debates and negotiations participants will use their own arguments, which will improve their capabilities.
Please come up with specific measures about how to reduce greenhouse gas emission for the globe.
The judges are from famous universities and institutions, including professors from Tsinghua University, Peking University and Wuhan University, and the WWF Director in China.
