The Conference will start with understanding Chinese and Japanese cultures, as well as some hard facts of the history between the two countries.
They will then engage in workshops on different soft skills such as conflict management, critical thinking, and media literacy, with contents covering controversial topics like Yasukuni Shrine issue and Diaoyu / Senkaku Island dispute.
The workshops culminate into a diplomatic simulation, where participants will act as governments and solve an imaginary Sino-Japanese crisis using the skills they have learned in the previous workshops. On the last two days of the Conference, participants will initiate peace activities off campus to share what they have discovered and promote the idea of peace between China and Japan.
Due to the recent COVID-19 virus outbreak across the world, the SJYC 2020 summer conference has now also gone VIRTUAL!
