Curious about the Model G20 Experience?

Curious about the Model G20 Experience?

Learn directly from two of our alumni about how attending a Model G20 summit impacted them. In the interviews below, two former delegates describe the social, experiential, and academic benefits they gained from the summits. Tomoki Matsuno from Japan and Jennifer Zhang from the United States describe their own summit experiences in detail.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Tomoki Matsuno

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT: Tomoki Matsuno

Tomoki Matsuno is a fixture in the Knovva Academy academic family: one of the Model G20 attendants at the 2019 MG20 Beijing Summit, the first delegate to represent Japan in the Y20 Tokyo Task Force, and the founder and current president of Japan’s first Knovva Student Club. I picked his brain on everything from his favorite cuisine (Japanese; you can’t beat a big plate of sushi) to his thoughts on the political climate in Japan and why policymaking is difficult in a trying-to-progress culture where elders are still so disproportionately revered.

Role-Play as a Teaching Strategy at the MG20

The MG20 Leadership Summit puts the student in the role of negotiator, researcher, collaborator, and leader. Over the course of a few days, students from around the world are immersed in a learning experience that challenges them to learn and act on information. They practice these skills in an engaging learning environment.
