1.【Message from the President】
It is an honor to greet you all from Ghana, As an executive body headed by the president of University Students chamber Ghana with unending support from the University Student Chamber International (UNISC International), we are privileged to state our mission of contributing to international cooperation and engagements of students in line with the objectives of the United Nations narrowed to the achievement of the 17 sustainable development Goals , a race we can win.
As students, our active participation, ideas, talents and desire to make the planet earth a better place will shape the sustainable bonds between international communities for a prosperous and peaceful world. We believe in the power of internationally minded students, and that they will become future leaders of the world by bringing positive energy and mutual cooperation.
In order to fulfil our shared mission, with our parent body’s unflinching support, we are in the course of expanding the networks and assets of University Student Chamber international. With the drastic changes taking place in the world, we seek to also provide a platform for students’ international exchange, and represent their opinions through symposia and general meetings under our mother headquarters in Japan. We hope our efforts will strengthen the ties among students from many different countries and will inspire the worldwide growth of similar networks, enthusiasm, and endeavours. These necessitated UNISC Ghana to organise its maiden edition of UNIAC GHANA to enable it bring to fruition its stated aims and objectives as summarised and reiterated in this very paragraph.
Above all, the executive body of UNISC -GHANA would like to express their deepest gratitude to all those who participated and in various means making provisions for their kind support and contributions to our organization.

2. UNIAC GHANA 2019 PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The University Student Chamber Ghana has officially opened application for its maiden University Student Chamber Annual conference (UNIAC GHANA 2019)
UNIAC GHANA 2019 is scheduled to take place in Tamale from the 23rd of June to the 27th of June, 2019. It’s a 5-day program.
Our choice of Tamale for the Maiden Edition is to have a great start to have a feel of the relevance of the SDGs as it’s absence in that part of the country is highly felt. It’s relatively less developed.
We are expecting to have about 55 foreign Nationals attending the conference. Among
these will be delegates from 11 selected countries, attendees from other UN member countries, UNISC-Japan Representatives and potential Investors and development partners from Japan. Delegates from the 11 countries will represent the SDG initiatives in their home countries. The delegates will discuss whether and how various actors such as companies and young people should tackle the goal. Prominent speakers have also been invited as guest speakers to deepen knowledge and discussion.
The most basic aim of the program is to have delegates of various participating countries present progress report of how their respective countries are faring in pursuit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as well as propose concrete solutions to the problems that countries do face in their attempt to attain the global goals. Another essential reason underpinning UNIAC GHANA 2019 is the brainstorming of all delegates and attendees to come up with Action Plans which will be presented to various countries and the United Nations to serve as a policy proposal specially drafted towards SDGs attainment.
The conference consists of an Outreach and a donation exercise to the schools around the venue of the program, it also includes a day for presentation by the various delegates from participating countries on the progress and challenges of the SDG’s in their country. On the final day of the conference, an Action plan will be drafted by all participant countries and submitted to the United Nations. We are hopeful that this will go a long way to benefit each of these member countries especially our country Ghana due to the efforts we are making to attain the SDGs by 2030.
