Model United Nations (MUN) for high school students
Since 2012, ACCU has been promoting Model United Nations (MUN) for high schools to bring up the next generation. In order to explore the current global issues, ACCU provides educational opportunities for high school students in the form of UN conference simulations. These efforts eventually aim at encouraging students to make positive actions to create a peaceful and sustainable society. In this diversified society, we recognize the significance of cultivating the following skills: skills of multidimensional, critical and theoretical thinking, multicultural communication skills, skills to overcoming conflicts and creating new values.
Skills cultivated through MUN
RAPDC(*) represents 5 skills to be archived through MUN. We expect participants not only to learn these skills but also to consider how to make use of and hand over these skills to the local communities and subsequent generations. RSPDC is also noted as a method of inquiry-based learning at Japanese high schools.
