This House Believes Sustainable Capitalism is Impossible

Join the UDS and Green Week St Andrews for our first in-person public debate this year. Student activists will clash on whether capitalism can meet our environmental challenges in what promises to be an exciting and controversial evening.
This event will take place in-person in the University's Can-Do Marque on Lower College Lawn (Bengal Pod). Due to capacity constraints in the Marque, booking is required for this event. Secure your free ticket here: .
This event will also be live-streamed to our YouTube channel.
The Union Debating Society is the oldest – and some might say finest – of its kind and was founded in 1794.
Our events are fully inclusive spaces and follow the Students' Association's zero tolerance policy towards discrimination and hateful speech and actions.
