This year's Cambridge International Development Conference (Cam.IDC) will be held on Saturday, 15 February 2020 at St John's College from 10am to 4pm. This Conference is organised by students and the Centre for Global Equality, a Cambridge-based NGO network with a global reach. This year’s conference, themed ‘Rising Tides: Meeting the Challenge of Inequality in the Age of Climate Change’, will explore how the ramifications of climate change disproportionately affect poorer communities and how climate change works to further perpetuate that inequality. The conference will host speakers with diverse experiences and domains of expertise - from prominent academics to NGO founders - and is expected to be attended by over 150 guests. The aim of this conference is to not only showcase innovative research in this area and bring about thought-provoking conversations, but also to create a space for students and other attendees to connect with those working at the forefront of international development. Cam.IDC participants will get to meet and personally engage speakers including an Executive Director at the British Red Cross, Executive Director at Action Against Hunger, various international development sector start-up founders, and leading academics engaged in this area.
