Global Classrooms: Japan Model UN Conference
In 2006, the Global Classrooms Japan was created with the help of Merrill Lynch Japan. Led by Tsukasa Noda, Merrill Lynch helped to establish the "Japan Committee for Global Classrooms"" which oversees the curricular, extracurricular and professional development needs of Tokyo students and teachers. In the past decade, the popularity of Model UN simulations in Tokyo increased on the university level.
However, most of the Model UN simulations are sponsored and conducted by private or regional institutions. With the expansion of the Global Classrooms program in Tokyo, the Committee is helping to bridge the gap between private and public schools in Tokyo.
UNA-USA is proud to continue Global Classrooms: Japan, a global education program that addresses the curricular, extracurricular and professional development needs of Tokyo students and teachers, alongside its new partner, the Asia-Pacific Cultural Center for UNESCO. The Global Classrooms: Japan program will culminate in a Model UN conference for participating students.
