Dear Delegates,

Welcome to Africa’s fastest growing Youth Leadership, Diplomacy Conference, Training and Networking platform.

Our world is evolving and with an increasing Youth (15-29 years) population of approximately 241 Million according to the US Census Bureau, there is the dire need for the African Youth to be proactive in responding to the continent’s needs since we represent a large percentage of the population which is approximately 28%.

During the 6th International Youth Diplomacy Conference in Accra, we will give delegates a unique opportunity to share experiences with people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Delegates will learn from seasoned Diplomats, Peace Makers and Conflict Resolution Experts, Development Practitioners. They will also have the opportunity to engage in intellectual simulations, peer challenges, role plays and understanding of international diplomacy. We will equally be taking them on diplomatic Missions tours where they will be engaged by serving diplomats.

Finally, we will be providing daily and nightly entertainments where participants can also network with colleagues from all over Africa and share experiences of culture among others.

At the end of the events, our participants will be moulded into youth leaders of change and will positively impact their communities. Aside the theoretical benefits of the conference, delegates will also have practical exposure and experience to social project planning and implementation for sustainable development. Also, they will be awarded certificates and special awards to outstanding delegates and delegations to pursue their future endeavours in life.

Thus, success comes when preparation meets opportunity. We look forward to welcoming and sharing more experience with you all at the IYDC-Accra, 2020.

The world needs you!

Regards

Acheampong Tutu – Executive President IYDC

A word from our past Delegates

A very influential institution in achieving the SDG 17. iFED Global is a model institution for connecting young people who are engaged for "development" across the African continent. iFED has provided to me, the opportunity to extend and strengthen my experience in terms of international relations and volunteerism. Innovation for Empowerment and Development is on the way of building a very active and sustainable Global Youth world. To reach that goal, it will require ethical engagement from each one of you and partake in the next conference.

DIABA AHMED SOULEADOWA (COUNTRY REP IFED-TOGO , IYDC-ACCRA, 2018)

I find the IYDC a very brilliant initiative, not only does it expose and develop minds across Africa, it brings back revolutionary spirits! It makes us, the youth want to aim at something more and makes us want to achieve more basically because we have, collectively identified our problems as a continent, distinguish global challenges with local scales, we try also to think around solutions together and because we know the problems and find possible solutions, we can go back to our respective countries and effect change. The dignitaries have been incredible in the last conference. They incited a lot of passion is us. I am very excited to be part of this.
