The ability to conceive, articulate, and evaluate different opinions remains not only the lifeblood of democracy, but essential for an engaged democratic society. Manchester Histories and partners host a day of exchanging different ideas and thoughts through debating, and discussing topics that have or are shaping our histories and society. So come along, share your views on all or some of the debates on offer.
We also open the floor for everyone to take part. The day will be streamed live via our twitter feed so you can join in the conversation. Or, why not organise your own discussion or debate in your own place, be it classroom, cafe, pub, or your own front room. Let us know what are debating, get involved, have your say. #DebateMcrHist
