【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.

     2. UNIAC Annual Meeting

What is UNIAC?
We, UNISC, organize UNIAC to maximize our scales of activities since 2018. In 2018, we set a theme: Think about Sideshows can we create the future that world’s youth leaders want? At the meeting after the representative students share their achievements and measures for each country’s different Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they are divided into 17 groups for each goal and discuss how we should deal with them for the realization from a various perspective such as governments, companies, and youth. On the final day, UNISC present the opinions came out from each group, and we make a proposal for SGD’s. Our proposal will be submitted to ECOSOC!!
Finally, we became the First-time organization run by students based in Japan to be officially recognized as the United Nation’s NGO. For the first time of UNIAC since the recognition, we will launch 6 days of the conference in this autumn.
Theme of UNIAC 2020

“SDGs for Human Security”

The notion of “Human Security” was proposed by the late Sadako Ogata, the first Japanese to become the high commissioner of the UNHCR, and Amartya Sen, the first Asian to receive Nobel Economic Prize.
Due to fast-growing globalization, countries are becoming more inter-depended than ever before. Therefore, problems such as poverty, natural disasters, disease, terrorism, sudden economic and financial crisis give significant impacts on people’s lives as these issues become borderless topics.
In order to counter current international problems, unlike the previous approaches which give states main roles, it is necessary to empathize human’s roles and understand numerous actors’ and categories’ relationships universally.
As we show condolence and respect to late Ms.Ogata by setting “Human Security” as agenda for this year, we wish delegates around the world deeply understand the concept, which Japan has been taken initiatives for many years. Then, hopefully, more detailed and realistic opinions for achieving SDGs will be brought up in the end.
