What we do
We host an annual conference relating to a contemporary global issue. We invite
expert and engaging speakers that are well versed on the topic who present to our
audience of 700 high school students from International Schools from 5 continents.
For the past 37 years it has been held in the General Assembly Hall at the United
Nations Headquarters in New York City.
To the end of promoting global awareness and cross-culturalism, the annual themes
are always ones of global importance. Over three hundred students from all over
the world are invited to attend in addition to the upper classes at the United Nations
International School. This is our second year that there will be a half day
international celebration featuring international performances and a cultural showcase
in the Sylvia Howard Fuhrman Auditorium at UNIS.
