Binus Wins Climate Change Debate, UI Keeps Atma IV Title

Atma Jaya IV 2014 Champions - UI A
Binus University (Marchella Febriyanti & Rivera Kathrin) won the 2nd Climate Change Debate Competition this afternoon while a few hours later Universitas Indonesia A (Aulia Anggita & Dennys Kapa) championed the 2nd Atma Jaya Intervarsity. Both British Parliamentary style debate tournaments were held in Jakarta. The clashing date was quite unfortunate as it split the pool of debaters who could compete in the capital.

In CCDC, a debate held by Indonesian government's National Council on Climate Change, Binus outclassed UI B (Reza Mardian & Badai Yuda), Universitas Padjadjaran (Westra Tanribali & Erfan Supradhono) and Universitas Brawijaya (Leiditya Naristi & Fahri Akbar). The tournament did not offer awards for top speakers.

At Atma Jaya, UI A defended the title after defeating Institut Teknologi Bandung (Vicario Reinaldo & Aulia Widyaputra), Universitas Gadjah Mada A (Indriani Pratiwi & Wida Wahyuni) and dark horse Universitas Pelita Harapan (Saagar Teckchandani & Dharma Dwitama). UI's Aulia Anggita topped the individual tab. This is the second trophy for UI in as many weeks. Last week, another UI team won the classic ALSA UI English Competition debate.
