It literally leaves you breathless. In the family, with neighbours, friends or colleagues, suddenly alleged facts are presented that would never stand up to scientific scrutiny. Whether it's Corona, climate change, "them up there" or other topics, science deniers always have a suitable counter-argument ready. What can be done? In this seminar, you will learn an easy-to-understand step-by-step guide on how to skillfully make the right arguments at the right time.


Dr Thorben Prenzel

...worked for many years for the largest German environmental association, BUND e.V. He has been offering argumentation training for many years because more and more often confused theories are openly advocated by reasonable people. To counter this, he developed the Triple-A method, which offers an easy-to-use guide to action for everyday life.
