模擬国連世界大会に本学の学生が参加しました

2016年11月に日本で初めての模擬国連が神戸で開催されました。世界十数か国から約330名の学生の参加があり、本学の経済学部生1名が参加しました。11月20日から神戸、広島、京都の文化視察があり、23日から26日まで神戸市外国語大学と神戸国際会議場で会議が行われました。

模擬国連は、実際の国際連合の会議をシミュレーションする教育活動で、参加者は自国以外の国の「外交官」の役割が与えられ、その国について予めリサーチをし、利害を代弁して他の国の代表に交渉や議論を行い、問題解決のための合意を図りました。

We all are born to be a part of this global community and have a responsibility for building it a resilient place for all species.

NMUN conference was held in Japan for the first time from 23rd to 26th in November providing a big chance for students from 12 countries to challenge ourselves thinking about how to dedicate to others. Playing the role of delegate for a country, each student was divided into different committees as General Assembly (GA), Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Security Council (SC) to negotiate with other delegates to make solutions for real global issues.

Being chosen as a delegate of Ghana in ECOSOC, for months I had a big chance to learn all about Ghana and its partnership through the past to the present in 2 topics provided: Meeting Sustainable Development Goals for all Nations and Building Resilient World through Disaster Risk Reduction. Also playing the role of a Ghanaian ambassador, I have learned more about developing countries, gender equality and have realized how lucky I am to be born and live in the safe and peaceful place. By that way, I have learned how big the responsibility I must have for this global community is. I have also learned how to negotiate with other distinguished delegates and bring in solutions for people in my country.

As the world all seems today, Climate Change has given so many bad impacts on society with increasingly millions of affected people and billions of dollars through disasters in recent years. Thinking about this, students in ECOSOC decided to discuss topic 2 on Disaster Risk Reduction first because of its emergency. We talked and gave every idea all the way to make draft resolutions on what countries should do to prepare for and fight against disasters. As stated in the disaster reduction guideline of the United Nations, I and my partner- we Ghanaian delegates noticed the importance of gender equality and especially the fact of “Disasters don’t discriminate but people do”. That’s why we tried to give best solutions to help all women and girls in disasters and now do call for the global community to take every action to help them.

Now I want to tell you "We do not only belong to one or two countries we live, we belong to this big world. We act now. And we change our future."
