Keio Academy of New York students were invited by Permanent Mission Japan to The UN to observe a side event on "Promoting Quality Infrastructure." held on Thursday 26 September 2018, during the high level week of the United Nations General Assembly. The event was attended by Foreign Minister of Japan Taro Kono and Parliamentary Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs Kentaro Sonoura.
The event proceeded according to the agenda but many speakers address directly to our students. This enabled our students to feel that they were not just observing the event but actually taking part in it. And, since our students held a study session before the event, at the end of the event Ms Kogure (12th Grade), representing our students, was given an opportunity to ask question.
Parliamentary Vice-Minister Sonoura's tweet (In Japanese)
Under a very heavy security surrounding the United Nations Headquarters, our students had an extraordinary opportunity to attend a side event that is not normally open to the public. This was a tremendous learning experience for the students who had attend.
