MUN

The committee sessions seek to educate delegates on how the United Nations General Assembly and other committees operate. Through debating, deliberating and negotiation, delegates fine-tune their skills in public speaking and confidence.

ELDERS' FORUM

This is an interactive session where we engage the expertise of elder state men who have acquired knowledge in diplomacy and international relations. Delegates get the opportunity to connect and interact with people with expertise.

Personal and Career Development Seminar

There’s the need for young people to gain the necessary skill to navigate through life. During the personal and Career Development session, we gather individuals excelling in their various fields to impart to young people by sharing nuggets needed for the advancement of delegates

GLOBAL VILLAGE

We believe in the rich diversity of the African culture. As such, during our Global Village, we create a platform to showcase the various culture by allowing delegates to promote their culture through music, cuisine, dancing and ways peculiar to their respective countries.

DIPLOMATIC DINNER AND AWARDS NIGHT

The Diplomatic Dinner and Awards Night will be held to recognise and award outstanding delegates and bid farewell to each other.

SOCIALS

IYDC, aside from being an intellectual conference, also has a lot of fun packed social activities to help delegates connect and build life long connection. Delegates will have the opportunity to tour the city of Accra and other historical sites in Ghana.
