Max Haveloos presents: Intellectual Speeddating – A Debate night on current events
Thursday 23 January 2020, 20:00 - 22:00
Have you ever wondered how your peers think about what is going on currently in Iran? Or whether they sympathise with or are rather skeptical towards the ongoing protests in Hong Kong?
On this Thursday evening, dispuut Max Haveloos will organise an “Intellectual Speed dating”, during which you will have the opportunity to exchange your points of view on current events concerning world politics with other participants, your fellow Sibbers and Groninger peers.
The event will be set up like traditional speed dating (if you don’t know how this works, don’t worry, it will be explained during the event). However, instead of trying to find romance, you will talk about prepared intellectual (and not so intellectual) topics related to current (political) affairs. (Of course if romance does spark, we are happy for you.) You will get five minutes to talk about a given topic, then you switch to the next person and so on. The topics will range from “The conflict in Hong-Kong” and “Iran vs USA, World War 3?” to more goofy topics like “Is the earth flat?” (Which we all know the answer to, of course it is). The topics will be introduced by a speaker who will give a little more context on the subject and spice things up! You only get five minutes to impress the person in front of you, so be quick! Afterwards the fun doesn’t stop, and we will have a pubquiz with questions from the given topics. The winning group will receive a Haveloos-themed price.
