Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning

Posted by GreenMtnAcademy

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning  will once again host a genuine debate based loosely on the format used since 1823 by the Oxford Union of Oxford University in England. Back by popular demand, the debaters are Derek Boothby and Peter Radford, with Steven Sinding again moderating the proceedings. Engaging in oratorical combat, one of our gladiators will propose and the other will oppose the motion. “The motion before this meeting is that the present Constitution is obsolete and should be replaced."

Members of the audience will then be invited to make short statements for or against the motion. After concluding remarks by the two speakers, there will be a vote by show of hands. Registration for the talk is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.
