Sustainable Development Youth Convention

The Sustainable Development Youth Convention is a 3-day event organised by Years 5 and 6 NUS High School students for Sec 3 – 4 student-participants from various schools in Singapore.  Last year (2010) was the inaugural SDYC during which a total of 130 students from 12 secondary schools took part. The Convention is run in accordance to United Nations procedures, serving as an academic simulation of debates in an intergovernmental organization, providing an additional learning experience for the participants.  The participants represent delegates of various stakeholders during the academic debates. Other highlights of the 2010 Convention included a radio dialogue with 938 LIVE, alongside tours of the NUS High School specialized laboratories and hands-on environmental science activities.
