Model United Nations are held around the world to teach high school and university students about international problems and about how the United Nations attempts to solve these problems. For 17 years, students in Mr. Card’s 12th grade Political Thought class at Keio Academy of New York have participated in a Model United Nations held in New York City. On May 10 and May 11, 15 students from Keio Academy of New York attended a Model United Nations, together with over 1,000 high school students from around the world. Our students, who represented Japan in 8 different committees, made speeches and helped to negotiate solutions to important issues facing the world. The Model UN’s closing ceremonies were held in the General Assembly at United Nations Headquarters. Our students performed very well during this intense, two-day event and we are very proud of them. We would like to offer congratulations to Ami Okano and Mizuki Saito who won an award for best research paper on the topic of Regulating Cryptocurrency in the International Monetary Fund committee.
