The University of Ghana School of Continuing and Distance Education has launched the 73rd annual new year school and conference on November 23, 2021.
The event is organized by the institution every year to discuss pressing local and international issues that countries around the globe including Ghana are battling with.
The theme for this year’s event is “COVID-19 and socioeconomic dynamics in Ghana”.
Speaking at the launch, the Dean of the School of Continuing and Distance Education, Prof. Olivia Kwapong hinted that the event is open to the youth to participate and contribute their quota to the discussions.
She urged the youth to partake in the 73rd Annual new year school and conference.
“And critical on the schedule of this year’s school is a youth school as a big side attraction. We have realized that if you want to dialogue, the future of this country is the youth. So if you want to have a very well and extensive dialogue then you have to rope in the youth,” she said.
Prof. Olivia Kwapong disclosed international keynote speakers will be part of the 74th edition of the Annual New year School as organizers are collaborating with the Finance Ministry.
The Annual New Year School and Conference is a week-long national programme held by the Institute of Continuing and Distance Education (ICDE) of the University of Ghana at the beginning of the new year.
The event gathers participants from all walks of life to meet and dispassionately discuss vital issues of public concern.
The 73rd Annual New year School and conference will commence on Tuesday, January 18 and end on 20, 2022.
