Today, the IAYG Family announced one of the largest planned programmes during the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdown. On 20 September 2020, IAYG will organize the first Geography & Global Studies Challenge competition in the state of Kerala, India. The programme, led by Project Lead Sonnet Salice, will be conducted virtually: representing one of many adaptations IAYG is making in response to the pandemic, which has transformed our planning for this year.

The competition will consist of round-robin and final rounds and begin at 9:00 on 20 September. Eligibility is open to all students currently studying or residing in the state, in years 7-12 of their study. There is no programme fee.
