We are sorry to announce that the SIEB will be postponed due to the recent coronavirus outbreak. The exact date of the competition is yet to be confirmed based on updates from the national and local health officials. Online courses will not be affected and will proceed as planned.
We are also sorry that participants from the Wuhan province are not allowed to join us in real-life in consideration of local health policies and potential risks.
However, they can have the option to join the event via Zoom, debating online with us! They will be judged equally throughout the event and will have an equal chance to win the championship! The SIEB team believes it's "unethical" to turn down participants based on their geographical location. They should have an equal opportunity to enjoy this valuable philosophy-learning experience! Participants from Wuhan, please contact us for further instructions.
Wuhan stays strong and China stays strong!
