 The JCK Youth Forum is an international student forum established by the United Nations Association of Japan, China and Republic of Korea in 2010. In this forum, students will debate and discuss challenges such as world peace, development, and environmental issues faced by the three nations, as well as the international community. By gathering the best and brightest students with diverse backgrounds, the JCK Youth Forum aims at widening our perspectives through symposiums and Model United Nations sessions. In addition, the forum provides the participants with an opportunity to show and improve public speaking and presentation skills. It is also a great place to make lasting connections with other members.

 The JCK Youth Forum will have three main programs:

  (1) A Symposium on the UN and East Asia’s role in World Peace and Sustainable Development;
  (2) A Model United Nations process on key issues that the international community faces today; and,
  (3) Cultural Exchange between the three participating countries.

 Every year, the Youth Forum is held in one of the three countries in rotation. This year, 2017, it will be held in China. Undergraduate and graduate students of varying backgrounds will be joining together in Guangzhou. All expenses will be paid for by the UN Association. Join us, across national borders, to work together and think of what we can do as students for the world.

 The deadline for the first round of selection is MAY 13th, 23:59.
