Our Work


The Great American Debate is a non-partisan effort put on by a consortium of debate technology groups working to make American democracy more robust and online communications more productive, clear, and educational. The Great American Debate 2019 will be our inaugural event and designed for the general public.



There is a persistent debate about climate change in the United States. There are debates over: what climate change is, if it’s happening, who or what is the cause, is it a threat, and if so - what could or should we do about it?
