The CIMB GROUP World Universities Peace Invitational Debate (CIMB WUPID), is the first ever invitational intervarsity debating tournament which is exclusive only for the top 30 debating institutions recognized by the World Debate Website and active members of the World Universities Debating Council.

The CIMB WUPID is organized by H&G Strategic Communications Sdn. Bhd. (H&G). H&G is a speech communication auditor, consultant and debate promoter. Since it’s establishment in 2006, the company has lend it’s debating expertise through debate event management, debate workshops and seminars, coaching and trainings, as well as the publications of debate handbooks and materials. H&G’s corporate objective is to enhance human capital through speech communication development programmes.

In conjunction with Malaysia’s 50 years Independence Anniversary, the theme for the CIMB’s 2007 chapter of WUPID is: ‘Independence: Respect, Tolerance and Togetherness’.

Purpose of this Debatepedia Category

The International Debate Education Association (IDEA), unsurprisingly, supports peace. A debate tournament centered around the theme of peace is valuable and worthy of further discussion. To this end, we hope the discussions surrounding peace and tolerance will continue long after the CIMB WUPID has concluded and all the competitors, adjudicators, organizers and observers have returned to their respective homes. Doing this is easy with Debatepedia! All you have to do is create a free account and add pages and material to existing pages. For help editing, see the "Editing Guide" in the upper left hand corner of this page. Remember: YOU OWN THIS PAGE!

Youth Peace Roundtable

An important part of the CIMB WUPID is the Youth Peace Roundtable featuring the prominent NGO Peace Malaysia. This event will feature youth discussing how to achieve peace both now and in the future. Part of putting this goal into practice is to design policy statements that can be disseminated to NGOs, policy makers, media outlets and generally interested global citizens. Debatepedia is a useful resource for collaborative work as even after the Roundtable, youth can draft policy statements by creating a page on Debatepedia, putting it in the category "Peace Tournament", and typing in their ideas. Others can then improve and edit so that improved statements can be generated. Imagine how much easier this is than emailing a Word document back and forth amongst dozens of people! We encourage you to use Debatepedia to achieve your goal of Peace, Tolerance and Understanding.

Peace Topics Already on Debatepedia

There are several articles on Debatepedia already devoted to issues of peace.

Some of them relate to peace or war, some to tolerance or intolerance, others to the philosophical underpinnings of peace, but they have one thing in common: they would all benefit from your unique perspective and intelligence!
