Green Growth Youth Council


1. Purpose

With the expansion of the admissions officer system, there is a growing interest in debate competitions. However, existing formats focus more on competition and winning rewards, rather than striving to improve the debating skills of the participants. We have created the Green Growth Youth Council in order to address these shortcomings, and to provide for a more educational competition, which can connect to the future vision of the students.

2. Objective

Christian organizations often host conferences in which churches from all over the world gather together to discuss the social responsibility that believers share and address the prosperity and well-being of society as a whole. By introducing this format to our students, we seek to achieve the dual purpose of encouraging a creative and self-driven education, and helping them find a field in which they could serve the future world. Through this conference, we seek to achieve the following:

1) Improvement in English skills for reports, essay writing, debating, and presentation.
2) Increase in interest in global issues.
3) Autonomous service in both personal life and study for the purpose of global well-being.
4) Comprehensive improvement in English skills, especially writing and debating.
5) Guide students to submit essay samples to English journals.
6) College entrance through the admissions officer system.
7) Aiding students to find their own way to serve, in relation to their intended major, fulfilling the character trait of service.

3. Progress

Students choose a country from all continents, including the developed and underdeveloped world, becoming the country’s representative. They collect and analyze data on the different agendas (energy, education, human rights, poverty, violence, environment) related to global well-being, and prepare for a presentation. Then, together with the representatives of the different countries, they seek a solution to their issues, and draft a resolution.

Throughout the process, students give speeches for each agenda item, participate in debates, seek solutions for each country, choose a resolution, and join in the congratulatory event. The drafted resolution becomes a practical assignment for the next semester, and on the next Council, students can share deeper insight gained from their experiences.

Through this experience, students can experience beforehand in an objective way the life that they should live in the future, and develop their practical thinking skills and abilities. This will contribute in their development into responsible adults that serve the world.
