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

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.
In the past the Society has hosted such great figures as Bill Gates, Stephen Hawkins and the current Dalai Lama, and it continues to provide Cambridge students with the opportunity to meet and question the people that shape our world, and has 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 the largest and most prestigious in the country, operating in over 16 countries worldwide.
