Law and Debate Club Dives into Ecocide Discussion
Med High’s Law and Debate Club took an active role during Human Rights Week, dedicating November 22nd to a crucial discussion: should Ecocide be recognized as an international crime? Students delved into pivotal questions, pondering, ‘Will this help prevent the cause? Or can we still achieve things without having it included?’
Gathering weekly, the club dissects topics, encourages group research, and holds debates to nurture essential debating skills. Court trials are also on the agenda, providing insight into formal trial procedures under the guidance of their teachers Ms. Hannah and Ms. Elina.
In sessions, students are divided into groups, granted research time, and guided in preparing arguments. The collaborative effort empowers students to present their findings and engage in meaningful debates on the pertinent issue.
