Aug 9 – Aug 13, 2018

 

【Message from the Secretary General】

It is an honor to greet you all from Tokyo, Japan. As a Secretary-General of University Student Chamber International (UNISC International), I am privileged to state our mission of contributing to international cooperation and engagements of students in line with the objectives of the United Nations.

As students, our active participation and talents will shape the sustainable bonds between international communities for a prosperous and peaceful world. We believe in the power of internationally minded students, and that they will become future leaders of the world by bringing positive energy and mutual cooperation.

In order to fulfil our mission, we are expanding the networks and assets of University Student Chamber Japan. With the drastic changes taking place in the world, we provide a platform for students’ international exchange, and represent their opinions through symposia and general meetings. With the division in Japan as its headquarters, we hope our work to strengthen the ties among students from many different countries will inspire the worldwide growth of similar networks, enthusiasm, and endeavours.

Above all, I would like to express my deepest gratitude all those who participated in various ways for their kind support and contributions to our organisation.
