A Summit is a type of youth diplomatic event, the IDP has specifically designed it by uniting the numerous recommendations from participants with existing diplomatic practices. The outcomes of our efforts are unique proceedings held weekly in both online and physical settings. Topics for the events are precisely tailored to the current world trends, usually, the topic is addressing a problem, and the participants’ main goal is to find ultimate solutions to it. The foremost main feature of our Summits is the fact that we send all the solutions to correspondent UN organs, where they are likely to get implemented into reality.
We are striving to make our Summits accessible to every interested individual, that is why IDP introduced the ideas of holding both “Global Summits” and “National Summits”. The first one is hosting participants from all over the globe, the official language of it is English and the resolutions made there are presented directly to International Organs. However, the “National Summits” are being held exclusively for the residents of a chosen country, the languages spoken there directly correspond to official languages in the country. The solutions from “National Summits” are sent to a country’s government or Nongovernmental organizations.
The current topics of most of our summits are directly or indirectly connected to COVID-19 and the problems it causes after borders reopen physical summits are also planned.
Online summits are being held on the “Google Meet” platform, it does not require you to download any extra software, you can straightaway join by clicking the link that is given to you before the Summit. During the proceedings, one is required to have her/his microphone muted unless the person is called out by a Moderator. The rules of procedure work in a way that a participant is allowed to speak when called out by the Moderator, or when the moderator states that the floor is open for points. The partaker should write “pt” or “point” into the chat to be put onto the speakers’ list. On the summits you represent yourself, as a citizen of your country, however, you don’t represent the country directly. Once you apply for a summit you will be invited to every other one held, so there is no need to reapply twice.
Global Coronavirus Summit Online
The IDP managed to become the first-ever organization to hold a Global Coronavirus Sumit Online. With participants from all over the globe coming together in an online environment, safeguarded from any viruses brainstorming to find the ultimate solutions for problems caused by COVID-19. The knowledge of virology experts with the brainstorming thirst of selected youngsters combined creates a nearly flawless problem-solving environment.
"We're all in a war against COVID-19 together, and together is also the only way we're winning it"
All solutions are being sent to the World Health Organization or other Worldwide Organs in the form of a resolution so they can actually be implemented and utilized. But do not mistake it with any simulations, Online Coronavirus Summit creates real solutions to be used by real organizations to fight the very real COVID-19.

National Coronavirus Summit Online
National Coronavirus Summits are being held for different nations worldwide, each of these Summits set a specific country, language, and government they work with. This type of event may even be more effective at solving local issues, as all the participants experienced the problems themselves, and are highly aware of the national Coronavirus situation. The procedural rules are the same as in GCSO. Currently, all the NCSOs are being held online, however, after the lockdowns end globally we will continue with organizing physical ones.
