Don’t pretend that this world is equal – it’s not. The question is: What are you going to do about it?
– Dame Emma Thompson, Union Speaker 2017
Join Cambridge’s largest student society today for the opportunity to see world-class speakers and debaters as well as many other member benefits.
Rebel children, I urge you, fight the turgid slick of conformity with which they seek to smother your glory.
Now in the twenty-first century we have the chance to create a better situation. Problems won’t disappear, they may increase, but adopting a peaceful approach means that we will address them by non-violent means. We need the confidence that comes from having truth on your side; it is powerful support.
The fact that we humans, who are ourselves mere collections of fundamental particles of nature, have been able to come this close to an understanding of the laws governing us and our universe is a great triumph.
An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them.
Ever wondered how to bring a different dimension to your event? How about resetting discussions into a historic setting? Our venue can offer a range of spaces for large scale conferences or dinners, with plenty of break out rooms available. Our experienced team offers onsite event management and AV support.
In the past, the Society has hosted such great figures as Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and the current Dalai Lama. It continues to provide Cambridge students with the opportunity to meet and question the people that shape our world, having grown into the central forum for student discussion in Cambridge.
Our public debates and guest speakers continue to generate passionate student engagement, and our university and school debating competitions remain amongst the largest and most prestigious in the world, operating in over 16 countries.
