FNF 2023 will have two competitions for different grades, Junior and Senior following the same format, which is a hybrid model in the British Parliamentary Debate format. The debate rounds will be between 14th October and 5th November with a Virtual Preliminary and Pre- Quarter round and the Quarters, Semi and Final Rounds on 4th and 5th November as a part of an Offline Leadership Retreat at our Vijaybhoomi campus in Karjat.
FNF 2023 debating rounds will follow the British Parliamentary Style Debate. This style of debating is one of the more popular forms, based on debates in the British Parliament. It was first adopted by UK universities but is now popular in debating competitions around the world. Much like in the House of Commons, the debate is split into two opposing sides: the proposition (or government), and the opposition. Each side is then further divided into ‘opening’ and ‘closing’ teams, all four of which have two speakers. These are named after their equivalent positions in the British Parliament.
FNF 2023 brings to you debating and a lot more. Skills to make you a leader of the 21st Century, a leader with strong persuasive skills, adept at critical thinking, innovation, keen sense of creativity and out of the box views. FNF, as in the past, will help you build these vital skills in a variety of platforms.
