Motions of day 1

R1: This House regrets the decline of tightly integrated families.

R2: Infoslide: Climate engineering is a deliberate and large-scale intervention in earth’s climatic system in an effort to combat Global Warming. Climate engineering may take many forms; Examples include, but are not limited to, planting large forests where none previously existed, fertilizing the ocean with iron to dramatically increase the population of algae, and increasing cloud coverage so less sunlight reaches earth’s suface. This house believes that environmental movements should support climate engineering that fundamentally alters the environment, in an attempt to combat Global Warming.

R3: This House believes that in areas of socio-economic deprivation, schools should train students in vocational skills to the exclusion of the Liberal Arts.

The Tab-team gives updates on the matchups, the motions and on the results after every round on the Malaysia WUDC homepage.

The organizers and Pretty Pictures photographer Matthias Carcasona already published photos of the last two days.
