Dr. Makato Kobayashi is Professor of Educational Psychology at Tamagawa University, where he is also chair of the UNESCO Club. He also serves on the Council of the National Federation of UNESCO Associations in Japan and as a Visiting Professor at the University of Michigan, Department of Psychology. Dr. Kobayashi was able to visit the UNESCO Center for Peace summer camp where Heather Caton, President of World Genesis Foundation, Guy Djoken, Jinji Djoken and Jeremy Wustner-Brown, of UNESCO Center for Peace, had a chance to sit and talk about club initiatives and projects.

Heather spoke about the recent Worldwide UNESCO Club Youth “Future of Education” essay contest in partnership with UNESCO Center for Peace. With over 500 applications from over 70 countries, the top three winners of the competition were giving the opportunity to attend the IMUN Summer camp. Heather attended the summer camp to give awards and recognition along with UNESCO Center for Peace.

The World Genesis Foundation also participated in the event with a Cultural Awareness program. “It was wonderful to meet with Dr. Makoto Kobayashi and learn about the amazing work he is doing. We look forward to future collaboration,” said Heather.

Dr. Makoto Kobayashi toured the Hood College Campus learning more about the IMUN Summer Camp, its history, goals and future. Dr. Kobayashi spoke about his students and the club initiatives in Japan. “It is important, especially because the encounter and the mutual learning beyond national borders will bring forth remarkable positive impact to both sides. Through building a global network of everlasting friendship with nice, highly talented students from various cultural backgrounds, this IMUN Summer Camp should really be regarded as a marvelous forum for the Global Citizenship Education,” said Dr. Makoto Kobayashi.

In 1947, Japan initiated the UNESCO movement. With steady expansion the Asian-Pacific Federation was established in 1974 and the World Federation in 1981. Still today NFUAJ is initiating activities such as School Support Projects, "Bridging the future" with Youth Activates, "Heritage for the Future" Movement and The World Terakoya Movement.
