ABOUT US

American in origin, the Ethics Bowl has finally made its way to Canada, and is certainly taking the country by storm. During an ethics bowl, teams of high school students discuss ethical dilemmas taking place at the forefront of world politics. Such dilemmas might include: how we ought to deal with assisted-death, sexting, and gene editing. What makes an ethics bowl different from a debate is that students are encouraged to amend their original position when faced with counter-evidence, and to view the case as the target of opposition, not the other team. This format allows students to explore difficult ideas in a collaborative atmosphere which is conducive to truth-seeking, collegiality, and open-mindedness.
