Charlie Winstanley

Charlie Winstanley
Charlie Winstanley is secretary of The Great Debate, a role he took on in March 2013. Charlie has a colourful political background dating back to his involvement in the Socialist Workers Party in his teens. He got into competitive debating through the Debating Matters competition at his 6th Form College in Blackburn (winning the Highly Commended Individual award at the National Final in 2007). Since then, he has retained his links with the competition, chairing regional debates in Manchester and Sheffield, and interned for the competition in the summer of 2007. Over the past few years he has kept busy, writing several articles published on online review magazines and organising an economics reading group at Sheffield University. In 2010 he worked as the project co-ordinator for an undergraduate research bursary scheme, and is currently writing an essay on symbology and propaganda he intends to put to tender.

Charlie has been working with The Great Debate since 2011 on our Schools Programme and was a judge at the Newcastle University Year of Sustainability school debate event in November 2011. He is currently developing our documentary-training programme, co-facilitating workshops as part of the HYPODS project.
