The London Debate Challenge works with teachers and pupils across the Capital, helping to set up debating societies within their schools. It also helps prepare pupils to enter a team from their school in a competition to find the best debate team in London. The Programme is supported by The London Challenge, Coca-Cola Great Britain, The Sir John Cass’s Foundation and, in the

first year, Tesco. ESU Chairman, Lord Watson, points out that this sponsorship is possible because companies and Foundations see the huge significance of establishing debating in London schools;

"This is bringing debating skills, with all the freedom and power of expression involved, to young people who often have no background of public speaking. It gives them the confidence to express arguments and make their case in a coherent and disciplined way. The Programme helps to build citizenship from the bottom up."

Since the launch of the initiative in October 2003, the ESU’s team of London Debate Challenge Mentors has delivered workshops to pupils from the Boroughs of Croydon, Hammersmith & Fulham and Westminster. Many more are planned for the coming term in areas including Southwark, Bromley and Lambeth. To accompany the workshops, resources have been sent to every state secondary school in London. A series of professional development sessions for teachers have been arranged for every Borough, which will raise the standard of debating in the competitions that are being organised. Comments Debbie Newman, Head of the Centre for Speech and Debate, "Feedback from the teachers and pupils involved has been overwhelmingly positive. The number of pupils who have said that they feel it has built their confidence has been particularly rewarding for the ESU team and the university students involved in mentoring."

"The Europe within us": Prince Radu visits Dartmouth House

Lindemann Scholarships Awarded The Lindemann Committee, chaired by Lord Stockton and comprising some of the most prestigious science academicians in Britain, met on 8 January at Dartmouth House to interview this year’s shortlisted candidates for the Lindemann Trust Fellowships. The Fellowships are offered to graduates of exceptional promise in both the pure and applied physical sciences, and are among this country’s foremost science prizes.

Relationships between Dartmouth House and ESU Romania have continued to flourish, more so since the international visit to Romania in May 2003. In December last year, the ESU was honoured to welcome Her Royal Highness Princess Margarita and His Serene Highness Prince Radu of Romania, as guests of honour at a luncheon held at Dartmouth House. Prince Radu spoke on the theme "The Europe within us" and outlined his hopes for the future of Romania in the international arena. Prince Radu opened using a phrase, coined by an American diplomat, that the Accession Countries saw the European Union as a supermarket – they could pick and choose the best pieces of the EU to suit their needs. Prince Radu pointed out that Romanian experiences of supermarkets were very different. During the Communist period, supermarkets in Romania only had shelf

after shelf of mustard. So, to say to a Romanian "you treat it like a supermarket" is to imply that "you only have one choice." Prince Radu implied that this latter interpretation was correct. In his view, there was a general misconception by the Western European powers, that former Iron Curtain countries were seeking to influence the EU too much before they joined. Romanian historical experience has always been characterised by being at the edge of Europe, but now, it is seeking to be an active part of the new EU. Valerie Mitchell chaired the luncheon and highlighted the important role that Her Royal Highness and His Serene Highness were playing in projecting the cultural and historical aspects of Romania to the world. The Hon. Gerard Noel gave the Vote of Thanks, identifying the importance of the role of the Romanian Royal Family in Europe. Also present at the event were Mrs Sinziana Dragos and Counsellor George Comsa from the Romanian Embassy.

For the year 2004/2005 two scholarships were awarded. The successful candidates were Ai-Lan Lee from Cambridge University and Bridget Wade, currently undertaking research at the University of Edinburgh. Each fellow will receive a grant of $30,000 to enable them to undertake scientific research in the United States for a year. In a report submitted to the Committee, Dr Daniel Condon, a 2002 Lindemann scholar who studied at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, wrote:

"In my opinion perhaps the most important aspect of the fellowship is the independence it has allowed me as a scientist…… I do not believe that any other method of post-doctoral development would have afforded me the opportunity to establish myself in a research field in which I had no prior experience. For that I am very grateful to the Lindemann Trust."

The Committee also gave its support for a conference on "Science and the English Language" to be held in March 2005 at Dartmouth House. The event will exemplify the spirit of the Lindemann Trust and the ESU in promoting the exchange of scientific knowledge and the role of English.

New York Welcomes the World The English-Speaking Union of the United States will host the next World Members’ Conference in New York City, 6-10 October 2004. It will be a four-day fest of stimulating discussion and exchange of ideas with ESU members from all over the world. The ESU US has invited renowned writers and scholars to speak and participate. Between Conference sessions, delegates will be able to explore this vibrant city with ESU friends. Renowned museums and galleries, instantly recognizable landmarks, world-class restaurants, shopping opportunities that range from street peddlers to high-end designer boutiques, and every conceivable kind of music and theater experience, are not the only reasons why millions of visitors return to this inimitable city year after year. Programmatic plans include the launch of the ESU of the United States’ new educational initiative, an international co-operative venture that will involve an Internet component and would accommodate a diverse group of English speakers at varying skill levels. The Conference will allow both American and global partners to meet and discuss current and future collaboration.

The World Members’ Conference will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel, East 45th Street and Madison Avenue. Although New York is "the city that never sleeps", delegates may want to, so reserve a room

Strasbourg Conference: Dimensions of the New Europe Lord Watson will lead an English-Speaking Union Conference entitled "Dimensions of the New Europe", which will be held in Strasbourg on Monday 6 September. It is apt that this Conference should take place in this city, which is known as the "crossroads of Europe" and is the seat of the Council of Europe, the European Court of Human Rights and the European Parliament. ESU France, Strasbourg Branch, will be organising cultural visits to coincide with the Conference. Strasbourg, with its rich and fascinating history dating from Roman times, offers a wealth of attractions, including a magnificent Romanesque and Gothic Cathedral, La Petite France, with its corbelled, half-timbered houses of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and museums of fine arts, decorative and popular arts and archaeology. Strasbourg is also famous for its gastronomy and its proximity to the Wine Route of Alsace. The Strasbourg Branch is looking forward to welcoming ESU members to this special Conference meeting and will give you all a warm welcome to their city. Dates of the visits will be confirmed shortly. For more details, contact the DirectorGeneral’s Office.

Primary school pupils debate at Cambridge University For primary school children, university and the reality of Higher Education may seem a long way off. But 43 ten-year olds from Tower Hamlets were given the opportunity to experience this for themselves, when they were taken on a day visit to Cambridge by ESU Centre staff, in December 2003. As well as seeing the sights of Cambridge, the pupils had a tour around Clare College and then took part in a debating workshop in the Cambridge Union Society Chamber.

After watching a display debate on the motion "This House would go to university", all of the children took part in a Debatathon on the motion "This House would abolish SATs", which allowed every child the chance to speak from the dispatch box. This day was part of the Primary School Debate Programme, generously supported by HSBC Education Foundation. Many thanks to Clare College, the Cambridge Union Society and Tower Hamlets Local Education Authority for making such a rewarding day possible. 3

The Mongolian Experience The ESU hosted a wonderful Mongolian evening, which was attended by HE Mr Dalrain Davaasambuu, the Mongolian Ambassador, on 22 January. Guests were treated to an enlightening lecture on the history and culture of Mongolia, and the challenge of Mongolian political and economic independence, given by Graeme Fife, writer and broadcaster. The lecture was introduced by Simon Moyle, founder member of ESU Mongolia, and the Mongolian Ambassador also spoke. The evening was rounded off with a marvellous selection of traditional and modern Mongolian songs sung by Enkhjin, the winner of a Mongolian competition to discover outstanding new talent among young artists. We were delighted to meet students from schools and universities at this most enlightening evening. In her Vote of Thanks, Valerie Mitchell emphasised the important role the ESU was projecting in Mongolia today. Proceeds from the evening will go towards ESU Mongolia’s programmes. Above: L-R Simon Moyle, Enkhjin, Graham Fife, Valerie Mitchell, HE Mr Davaasambuu.

ESU Governor visits ESU Madagascar predecessor, Mrs Ginette Randriambeloma, and British Ambassador Brian Donaldson. The highlight of Chris’s flying visit was not the informal talk he gave to ESU members, but the news that Hary, a leading authority on yams, had just been awarded one of Madagascar’s most prestigious research prizes by the government. Chris reported that “I was able to bask in our Malagasy Chairperson’s reflected glory for the rest of my stay, and I am confident that our new ESU will benefit enormously too.” Dr Jeannoda is a regular visitor to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and we very much hope that her itinerary will include Dartmouth House on her next visit to Britain so that we can return her hospitality.

Above: Dr Hary Jeannoda with Mr Chris Redman.

When newly-appointed ESU Governor, Chris Redman, mentioned to the DirectorGeneral, Valerie Mitchell, that he was planning to visit recent ESU recruit, Madagascar, wheels were rapidly set in motion to steer him in the right direction. 4

Letters of introduction were dispatched to Antananarivo, and even before Chris had learned to pronounce the capital’s name, he had antananarrived to a very warm welcome from ESU Madagascar Chairperson, Dr Hary Jeannoda, her

Although Madagascar, a former French colony, is a largely francophone country, English is catching on fast, especially among the young. Marc Ravalomanana, the country's new, reform-minded President, has decreed that English be taught in all Malagasy primary schools. We trust this will ensure a steady future flow of Malagasy competitors in our international public speaking competitions, as well as participants in our summer conferences and other ESU activities and programmes.

Please help the ESU and cut costs to yourself... As an independent organisation, the ESU receives no Government grants and we rely on income from subscriptions, sponsorships, gifts and legacies. Consequently, we draw to your attention, the latest ways of making tax-efficient donations. It is possible to help the ESU and pay less tax yourself. These ways include: GIFT AID. Provided donors complete a simple declaration (that their gift is being made out of taxed income) the ESU will be able to reclaim tax on all donations – large or small, regular or one-off. Also, donors can telephone their Gift Aid declarations, which then become legal on receipt of a confirmation letter from the ESU. A CHARITIES AID FOUNDATION ACCOUNT. This allows you to open an account with which to make donations to charities of your choice. The Charities Aid Foundation can reclaim the tax on your donation and credit it to your account. GIFTS OF QUOTED SHARES AND PROPERTY. When given to charities, these now qualify for full tax relief, the market value being allowed as a tax deduction. Such gifts also continue to enjoy existing relief from Capital Gains Tax. PAYROLL GIVING. Under this scheme employees can authorise their employer to deduct donations to charity from their pay before calculating PAYE. In this way, the employee gets tax relief at his or her top rate of tax. Please send me further information on:

LEGACIES. Though seven out of ten people never make a Will it is important to make one and ensure your assets are inherited by the persons or charity you choose, and because of the tax advantages. Gifts to charity are exempt from Inheritance Tax. If you leave your estate in Trust to your husband or wife for their lifetime, stipulating that after their death, the estate will pass to charity, NO TAX is payable. The ESU has prepared a simple guide to making a Will, which we would be happy to send to you, free of charge

For more information on any of these methods of tax-efficient giving, please complete the form and return it to the ESU. The ESU values its supporters, without whom it would not be able to carry on its work.
