What is PechaKucha?
PechaKucha is a global organization founded (2003) and based in Tokyo that features a public presentation format it created: 20 images x 20 seconds per image. PechaKucha Nights now take place in over 800 cities around the world, and are conducted by local organizers who schedule regular events in their respective communities.

The Informed Young Leaders series is separate from PechaKucha Nights and authorized as individual one-off ‘Powered by PechaKucha’ events. IYL believes this format challenges student presenters to be very focused and concise delivering their presentations on complex political issues of the day.
