What we do today about our youth’s education and upbringing would have consequences that would last a century or more. The part of that education which also includes debating activities and involvement in debating tournaments such as WUPID is not without any constructive outcome in the foreseeable future. The wind of peace and tolerance we send in the debating atmosphere in 2007 is back and kicking in 2017. And we intend for it to stay for another 10 years and more.

There are no bin rooms in WUPID, you get top teams from the get go and throughout and enjoy the intense high-level debates and adjudication. A joy to take part in, a joy to watch and most importantly a tournament to brag about even after 10 years. WUPID is as classy as debate tournaments can get.

It is a world-class debating competition, with quality organization and brilliant range of motions. The most beneficial aspect of all, is that debates after debates at WUPID, from round one to the very end, were of high standards. Which you would only get at the later stages of many competitions. Experience was great!

WUPID at its inception brought together some of the best debaters in the world to showcase debating at its best. This was a good move to enable Malaysian teams, preparing for Worlds, to have sparring sessions under a very competitive environment. It’s not often that you get the chance to debate against the worlds bests. Some good debaters in the region also came to WUPID to finalise their preparation for Worlds thus making WUPID and important and prestigious pre-Worlds tournament.
