About & People

What you need to know about the Ethics Bowl China and the regional Ethics Bowls it oversees.

What is the Ethics Bowl?

The Ethics Bowl is, as its name suggests, a discussion on ethical issues. It takes the form of a debate (where two teams exchange ideas with each other), but it is, in essence, different from a debate. In the Ethics Bowl, teams do not aim to prove the other side wrong. Instead, they engage in constructive and respectful dialogue to demonstrate their ability to think critically and collaboratively on contentious ethical issues. It is the mission of the Ethics Bowl to promote respectful, supportive, and in-depth discussion of ethics among pre-college students, thus preparing them to navigate challenging ethical issues in a complex moral and political community.

What is the Ethics Bowl China?

The Ethics Bowl was initially an event for US college and high school students. It was introduced to China in 2019 as an International Affiliate of the US Ethics Bowl and was first known as the Shanghai Interscholastic Ethics Bowl (SIEB). The EBC now oversees four regional Ethics Bowls across the country and provides all kinds of support for our regional organizers, including promotions, fundraising, material design, and international collaboration opportunities with our partners. Each year, hundreds of students participate in Ethics Bowl competitions held by our regional affiliates and our nationwide Ethics and Philosophy Workshops. The EBC is also the co-organizer of several international Ethics Bowl events.
