Indonesian Youth Conference (IYC) is an activity planned and organized by youth, and aimed at gathering Indonesia youth to share problems and ideas, enhance their awareness of current issues, and convince the public that youth voices must be heard and taken seriously. IYC consists of two activities that are intertwined with each other: 1. A forum that invites 33 young people aged 15 to 21 years from all over Indonesia to represent their respective provinces at this event.

PKN Concepcion in 2010

We all know Concepcion -- and a good part of Chile -- had it rough this year, but we're still glad to see that life does indeed go on, and that organizer Alejandra Sepulveda Hernandez managed to hold four PKNs following that devastating earthquake. Here then a few photos from those events, and from the entire PechaKucha team, we wish everyone in Concepcion an amazing 2011!


PKN Concepcion in August

Organizers in Concepcion are readying their next PechaKucha Night, this time following a theme of "architecture" (the last one had "design concepts" as a theme), and set to happen August 20 at the Universidad Santo Tomas.
