Mission for Understanding
The World Affairs Seminar is an international youth initiative of Rotary International District 6270. Our vision is to bring better understanding of world problems to young people from around the globe, using current issues as a learning platform. In the course of this study, the WAS provides opportunities for participants to discuss issues with other young people from around the world. Emphasis is on promoting better understanding of the causes of international conflict. The idea is if the causes are understood and solutions developed in a cooperative environment, problems are more likely to be solved peacefully.
World Affairs Seminar was a life changing experience for me. It is probably the most important single experience I’ve ever had. I still see the positive change it has in my life, and in other delegates. In an ideal world a lot more would get the chance to attend!Ben from Oslo, Norway
