Marist Brothers International School (Japan) present at the 27th Annual Model United Nations

From 22-23 February, Marist had the pleasure of hosting the 27th annual Model United Nations at the Sannomiya Convention Center in downtown Kobe. More than 80 students from nine international schools from all over Japan, including Marist Brothers International School (Kobe, Japan) participated in the conference, where they discussed “water wars”, “gender in sports” and “CRISPR” gene-editing technology.

Amidst the bustling atmosphere of the conference, it was truly inspiring to witness the passion and determination of each student as they navigated complex issues and advocated for meaningful change. The bonds formed and the lessons learned during this immersive experience will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on all who participated. As an advisor, seeing the growth and development of our students fills me with immense pride and reaffirms my belief in the transformative power of experiential learning. Each delegate’s unique perspective and unwavering commitment to diplomacy serve as a beacon of hope for a brighter, more harmonious future.

As always, the conference concluded with all delegates debating an emergency crisis resolution. This year’s crisis simulated the all too real possibility of regional war breaking out in the Middle East.

Marist MUN advisor, Mr. Deyss would like to recognize this year’s committee chairs, for the hard work they contributed to ensuring a successful conference. Additionally, Mr. Deyss would like to say thank you to Mrs. Yuksel and Mrs. Inada for all their help with MUN. Finally, Mr. Deyss offers his appreciation to the Marist PTA for their generous financial support of the Marist MUN conference.

Although this year’s Marist MUN has ended, the MUN season continues. This month, several Marist tenth graders are spending the first days of their spring break at the Japan Metropolitan Model United Nations in Yokohama.
