Good news for those who already count down to the German debating championship 2011 staged in Heidelberg: Delete a fortnight from your count-down calendar! The most important tournament in German language was re-scheduled, it will now take place from 9 to 12 June 2011, as VDCH (Association of Debating Societies at Universities) vice president Benedikt Nufer reports.

The German debating Championship will be staged in Heidelberg from 9 to 12 June 2011. Format will be OPD, the open parliamentary debate widely spread in the German speaking debating circuit. The Debating Club Heidelberg (DCH), then German debating champion in 2004, will now be host to Germany’s largest tournament where at least 45 teams will participate.

The ZEIT DEBATTEN series is convened by VDCH in cooperation with the weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT and Deutsche Telekom, supported through VDCH’s media partner ZDF, a German public broadcaster. It has been a decade now since the first ZEIT DEBATTEN series kicked off with at least five annual tournaments, among them the German debating championship. The series is nested under the honorary patronage of the former German chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
