Two opponents engage in a battle which must not take longer than 1,5 minutes but has to include all arguments.
Person 1: Data protection is important.
Person 2: I don’t have anything to hide.
The two participants who will engage in the battle have to volunteer. For their preparation, they pick their own coaches (max. 3-4 persons). The other participants gather arguments for both sides and make one list of the arguments each. During the battle, the list is used to tick off the arguments the two opponents put forward. One team is in charge of filming the battle. The team members prepare a stage on which the battle takes place and is recorded. Primarily, the footage is used for documentation purposes, so the contents can be reflected on.
After the preparation the battle is carried out. During the battle, the two coaching teams sit behind the opponents in order to “back them up”. The audience uses the lists to check which arguments were used already and which ones are still missing.
The audience decides who the winner is:
During the final round of the activity, the participants discuss what all this could mean for them personally.
