The International Student Conference (ISC) is an organization established in 1954, where international exchanges and discussions take place among students from around the world. In regular years, students are invited to Japan each year in August for two weeks to discuss global issues.
A Final Forum is held at the end of the conference to present discussion outcomes and potential solutions for selected global issues. Every year university-level students from all five continents are invited to join the conference. In recent years, policy proposals have been submitted to the Japan Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the end of the conference with the hope to bring positive change to society. For more information regarding this year’s conference, please refer to our website: https://www.japan-isc.org/en-outline.
Participants at ISC are divided into discussion groups referred to as "tables". Each table focuses on researching and discussing a selected global issue under a discussion leader referred to as a table chief. This year, there will be five table topics as follows.
Table 1 Political Activism and Participation: Why They Take Part in Politics
Table 2 Nuclear Politics: What We Can Do for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons
Table 3 Food Security: How the Global Government Should Sustainably Feed 8 Billion
Table 4 Migrant Laborers: Rethinking Migrant Labor Rights in The Pandemic
Table 5 Participatory Urban Planning: Developing Inclusivity & Accessibility in the Globalized Cities
Once accepted as a participant, they will join a series of academic discussions and cultural exchange activities. Here, participants can deepen their understanding of the global issue that they are interested in while also engaging in various cultural activities.

We, the committee members, believe that joining the conference will turn into a life-changing experience for every participant. Although the conference this year will be held online, we aspire to create a platform for youths worldwide for positive change in the world.
It would be our greatest pleasure and honor to have your cooperation in spreading the words to students who might be interested in such kinds of activities at your university. We would be so grateful if you could share this information at your university's bulletin or in classes.
