What we had back at Ganesha Open

The journey to ITB Ganesha Open started on a rainy night of Friday, but the battle started on the next day. It was a four round a day debate with challenging topics and lots of pressure. Our two teams (Richard-Febrilina and Nico-Tasya) and independent adjudicator (Arif-Shannon) struggled as well as learnt about tons of things in this competition. The result might not be maximum for both teams, but it was definitely a good investment for future development and knowledge. Not to mention, a fun experience to be spent together as friends.

On the first round, Atma 1 became CG while Atma 2 became OG at the same chamber under the motion “As Syrian Opposition Council, we should reconcile with Bashar Al Ashad in order to progress with the Syrian conflict resolution”. They faced other two teams from ITB alumni and Binus. It came out that Atma A got 2nd position while Atma B got 4th position. Continue reading
