Drinking Age Debate
The debate will be about the current drinking age and whether it should be changed or not. Three speakers will represent each side of the issue, and audience members will be allowed to participate in the discussion. The three in favor of the current drinking age will act as the government, while the other three will represent the opposition in a parliamentary style hearing.
The CDD was founded in 2006 as a nonpartisan, interdisciplinary center for research, teaching and outreach. It concerns itself with civic engagement and democratic deliberation. It is structured around the belief that a citizenry with knowledge and communication skills and a culture of informed deliberation are keys to a healthy democracy.
