IBDAA is an unconventional approach towards education the AUB-NCC has developed over the past decade. As an academic poster forum it allows interdisciplinary discourse to take place between undergraduate, graduate students, and field experts in an informative and engaging milieu. Focused on practical learning, IBDAA invites professors to enroll their classes in a competition to raise awareness of current environmental concerns by offering original and viable solutions. IBDAA has, over the last decade, hosted over 2,000 students from different fields of study and has engaged more than 20 courses.
IBDAA 2018 will have the theme "Sustainable Cities and Communities", inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN for 2030.
