The 7th-grade students recently participated in a Student Diplomat Program for Middle School Students that immerses middle school adolescents in the world of international affairs and diplomacy. This program offered students an exciting opportunity to examine global conflicts and trends from multiple perspectives and work together to create promising solutions to these challenges.
The first stage of this program was a Cultural Diplomacy Conference. This half-day program introduced our student diplomats to the United Nations with an emphasis on understanding how cultures differ in terms of culture and diplomacy.
This year's overall program topic is Sustaining our Global Future and features two committee topics:
- Building the Sustainable Cities of the Future
- Creating Sustainable Food Systems
The girls immediately saw the connection between this topic and our Sacred Heart Goals and Criteria and were eager to begin this journey.
