Ritsumeikan Uji Students Attend IB World Student Conference



This month, six students from Ritsumeikan Uji attended the 2015 IB World Student Conference at the University of Rochester in New York state. The six students were selected as part of our school’s Global Challenge Program and their attendance was subsidized by Ritsumeikan Uji. The conference drew more than 200 IB students from around the world. Delegates investigated the theme of play and learned to use ideas of play to address major global issues in their groups. Students also heard from a range of distinguished speakers, including Bob Mankoff, the legendary cartoon editor of The New Yorker magazine. In addition, delegates enjoyed a variety show with student acts, sports and leisure activities, two museum visits, and a closing dance. Students reported having a wonderful time getting to know new friends and IB peers. The six Ritsumeikan Uji students will report on their visit this fall back home in Kyoto and work to take the learning their gained and apply it to their home community.
