PPU DEBATE - Should the US Fund Sustainable Infrastructure Overseas?

Monday, October 17, 2022 - 7:15pm

Food Provided.

Join the five caucuses of the Penn Political Union (PPU) for a debate on the resolution, "The United States should invest in foreign nations' sustainable infrastructure."

The PPU is unique among debating societies in encouraging participants to make heartfelt cases for policies they believe in to a politically diverse group of fellow students. Members can join one of five caucuses that span the political spectrum: Progressive, Liberal, Centrist, Conservative, and Libertarian. They can then take active roles in formal debates on important policy problems. At a time of political polarization and social-media bubbles, it is an opportunity to hone and challenge one’s own opinions, as well as make friendships “across the aisle” and cultivate the practices of civil discourse.
