The students will be welcomed by a multilingual tour guide and taken on a journey through the corridors of international diplomacy, where they will learn about the history and structure of the UN. The students will learn how the United Nations deals with issues such as promotion of human rights, disarmament, peacekeeping and sustainable development. The students will see remnants of the nuclear explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and will also have an opportunity to view a briefing by a UN representative on a specific topic. These students will also participate in a human rights forum with high school students to extend their learning.
