About the Mixed Teams Track

The Mixed Team Track (MTT) has been the core of the Youth Forum since its beginning. Believing in its true virtue of multiculturalism, we create a nurturing atmosphere to allow for an unforced exchange of ideas and standpoints to various issues of debate and areas of life.

After Karl Popper Debate Championship (KPDC) organizers divide student debaters into international (or “mixed”) teams, assuring the greatest national, linguistic and debate experience diversity of each team. This team works together on preparing a new set of topics with an international team of debate coaches and trainers.

Following the preparation phase, international mixed teams enter the International Debate Tournament, which is similar to the KPDC; the only difference being that debating teams do not represent their nations. The MTT is open for all students who will continue high school after attending the Forum.
