The World Schools Debating Championships (WSDC) is a truly global competition for high school debaters. The Championships take place each year in a different country, hosted by a national debating body. Past venues include Peru, Qatar, Seoul, Athens, Cape Town, Bangkok, Singapore, Stuttgart, and in 2017 Denpasar, Indonesia.
All the debates take place in English. Each country can submit a squad of 3-5 eligible students to debate social, moral and political issues. There are currently between 50 and 60 nations that meet annually.
Past patrons of the Championships include Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu and Tony Blair.
