The Moroccan National Debate Team (MNDT) is a high school team that competes in English language debates, and is governed by Moroccan Debate Asssociation. The team was founded by Soufiane Choubani, who had the idea of creating the team in late-2013 after his first national championship as a coach. The idea came into reality in March 2014 when he announced his plans and the first Moroccan National Debaters were pre-selected. In August 2014, The MNDT became the 1st ever (and only) North African nation to compete in the World Schools Debating Championship (WSDC) in August 2014 in Thailand.
The team is selected each year in September, where we select the most outstanding students who display potential in speech and debate, and then train them to compete at the most prestigious competitions around the world.
Our other activities also include hosting debate clubs and competition in different four cities and each summer, we host the Moroccan-Youth Debate Camp in different cities, which was the first Debate Camp in North Africa. We also proudly organizer and host the Moroccan Open Debate Tourament (MODT), which was the first-ever international high school and World Schools Style (WSS) tournament in North Africa when it was first held in Tangier in December 2014.
