We are pleased to announce the fifth annual International Development Conference (IDC) at the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus (UTSC). IDC is a completely non-profit, student-run and student-organized conference and will be taking place on February 6th and 7th, 2016, at UTSC. The theme for this year's conference is "Diversifying Development" (for more information on the theme click here).
We will be hosting six thematic discussions (formatting will depend on the speakers, but will include small-scale debates, panel discussions, roundtables, and more), five workshops, a large-scale debate and two keynote presentations. In the spirit of 'diversifying development' we are also encouraging all delegates to participate by presenting at the Student Research Panels in partnership with the Undercurrent; an un-conference, delegate-facilitated Open Space, and a Networking Drinks Gala in partnership with the Ontario Coalition of International Cooperation.
Our mission is to provide a powerful and inspiring forum for students, academics and development professionals to engage in critical and meaningful discussions pertaining to the field of international development. We would like the Conference to be informative and interactive, and we hope that students leave with both an enriching and inspiring experience!
