The World Affairs Seminar (WAS) program is a week-long opportunity for students ages 15-18 to gain a better understanding of world problems using current issues as a learning platform. In the course of this study, the WAS provides opportunities for participants to discuss issues with hundreds of young people from over 30 countries around the world. The 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. This year’s topic of focus is Climate Change: Youth Take Action.
Thank you to the Elmbrook Rotary for sponsoring the following students from Brookfield East High School (pictured from left to right) to attend this year’s event: Sidney Baman and Maggie Stapel.
