Summary of Debate

In our first ever debate in English which took place in New York University Abu Dhabi, we worked hand in hand with the team in NYUAD and with students from their debating program. The topic revolved around solutions to for food security and using synesthetic biology as the ultimate solution instead of depending on food security programs. Both teams competed fairly, and we closed the session with a discussion between Youth and the attendees.
