The Transatlantic Debating Network is a group of people who share a common passion for eloquence and a mutual concern for the transatlantic political relations –all those who have taken part in the Transatlantic Debating Championship and those who will ensure the future deepening and strengthening of this transatlantic debating project. Besides the next editions of the TDC, other transatlantic initiatives will be projected.

The network is based on the members of the debating teams, the members of the juries, the chairmen, the diplomats, the sponsors and all those who have generously given their time and intellectual energy to this project of relating –through the debate arena– the future transatlantic political leaders.
