International Student Conference (ISC) in Japan was founded in 1954, and works towards the same goal of its host organization: International Student Association (ISA), which aims to “contribute to achieving world peace.” The 63rd conference, which will be held this summer, will focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The guest speaker at the final forum will be Mr. Tetsuo Kondo, the director of UNDP Tokyo Office.
There will be many opportunities in the conference to ponder on Japan from various perspectives, and to deepen your understanding of your own culture; you will explore not only Tokyo but also another place in west Japan, such as Kyoto and Osaka, and you can even get the chance to experience Japanese traditions to reveal the historical side of Japan. In addition, discussions in small groups will get you to realize how difficult but wonderful at the same time it is to exchange opinions with people having completely different backgrounds. These will certainly broaden your perspectives.
