Epsom Debate Society (EDS)

26 Feb 2019

Every Monday, the Epsom Debate Society (EDS) meets to debate a current affair issue or topic of interest. Yesterday, Vien and Yie Shern, both in Year 13 presented the pros and cons of introducing a Universal Basic Income (UBI) to address poverty and the effects of automisation as AI replaces humans in an increasing number of sectors. The debate was very enlightening and informative and, while Vien made some excellent points in favour of the introduction of UBI, a significant majority of the audience voted against its introduction.
