Reverence for the past, aspirations for the future
CheongShim International Academy, South Korea
Friday 6 March 2020 – Sunday 14 March 2020

Open to students aged 13 to 15
Cost: Approx. $3750

On this conference delegates are going to be consumed in Korean culture – both the old and the new. From experiencing the splendour of Seoul’s ancient palaces, to submerging themselves in the world cultural phenomenon of K-Pop, they will be able to reflect on rapid social changes and how such changes apply and are manifested in their own countries. Delegates will also be able to experience the realities of being in the world’s only divided country, up close and personal! They will have the opportunity to travel to the DMZ – the border dividing the two Koreas – and will have the opportunity to gaze into the world’s most secretive state: North Korea. This experience will set the stage for delegates’ participation in an expansive Model United Nations program, in which they will each represent a state and try their hands at diplomacy and the exercise of democracy. And between it all there’ll be time for a hiking trip up the beautiful Bukhansan Mountain, an immersive cooking class and a variety of other activities to make this trip an incredible experience for those students interested in Democracy and Internationalism.

Taking action for a sustainable future: Chiangmai offers a unique natural environment surrounded by the beauty of mountains and forests, it is a place where new and old Thailand meet. Students will take part in a variety of sustainability discussions, activities and service at a school focused on sustainability. Onsite they have a sustainable farm, many outdoor sporting and recreational facilities, and in the local area they connect with many organisations that are also working toward sustainable futures for the community. The conference seeks to arm students with the ability to take on new challenges and take action on sustainability issues whilst meeting students from across the globe. The conference will include fun led by Prem’s own students, a visit to an elephant sanctuary, creating natural products on their sustainable farm, working with a hill tribe village and visit a forest and help restore it. For students keen to have a rich and authentic experience of Service, Environmentalism and Internationalism this is an unmissable experience.
