Siddharth Pandiya is the founder of Debate for Change. Currently in Grade 12 at Greenwood High International School, Bangalore, he is an avid debater and Model UN participant. An accomplished public speaker, he has won awards at a plethora of different competitions at the city, regional, national and international level. He is the founder and Head Delegate of MUNdreas, India’s premier Model UN (MUN) delegation, which has won the country’s most prestigious MUN, Harvard MUN, for the past two years running (2015 and 2016).
Siddharth has been a gifted debater and public speaker since Grade 4. At that age, he noticed the glaring absence of a platform where students and adults could debate pertinent issues, exchange ideas and discuss opposing viewpoints every day. He has founded Debate for Change to fill this very void. This venture enables people to connect with others at a similar level across the world and engage in fruitful debate about a farrago of relevant and riveting topics.
DfC participants can choose from a range of statements, and subject to opponent availability, can engage in organized discussion. The three major differences between DfC and other debate websites are:
The voice (and soon, video) functionality
The presence of a moderator to declare a winner
The system of ranking on the basis of points
So join Debate for Change today, and vie for that coveted World #1 rank!
