Voices for Nature launched the Jabuji Debates as an exciting way for students to hone public speaking and debating skills, to explore geo-political and environmental issues and to learn more about Brazil and its rainforests.

The debating competition 2015 – 2016 is hosted by Eton College and sponsored by Blackwell’s, Oxford’s prestigious bookseller.
