Welcome you all to the WFUNA Youth Camp: Korea.
WFUNA Youth Camp is a prestigious and fantastic educational program specially designed for future young leaders by the World Federation of United Nations Associations. The College of International Studies, Kyung Hee University, is proud to host its Korean camp in association with WFUNA.
As a leading private university in Korea, founded with the mission to create a civilized world, Kyung Hee University pursues global eminence with its state of the art research facilities, renowned faculty, and social and global contribution. Following the founder's commitment to international cooperation and global peace, Kyung Hee has a cherished tradition of close relationship with the United Nations.
The College of International Studies, often called as KIC, Kyung Hee International College, is committed to the education and training of further international specialists who will play a leading role in the era of globalization with a broad perspective and necessary skills for leading international organizations, global corporations, the mass media, non-governmental organizations and public sector agencies.
KIC also has been contributing to the awareness of international issues and global values for young potential global leaders. This is why KIC has been hosting a number of Model United Nations conferences including Global Classrooms: Seoul, debate championships, and international workshops and seminars. I hope that WFUNA Youth Camp: Korea is going to be a good part of this tradition.
During the Youth Camp, participants will have a great opportunity of deepening their awareness of controversial global issues, understanding and respecting the diverse perspectives, and cultivating their debating and negotiating skills. In addition, they would be given a certificate of participation in a globally prestigious program developed and run by an international organization, WFUNA.
I once again welcome all the participants and look forward to seeing you at Kyung Hee University's Global Campus.
