The aim of this program is to train excellent students as leaders with broad perspectives and creativities, who are globally active beyond areas of industry, academia, and government.
For our 1st International Symposium, two professionals who have been working closely with disadvantaged regions in Japan and developing nations will give keynote lectures. The two professionals are Mr. Shinya Ominami (Director, NPO Green Valley Inc.) and Ms. Hiromi Tengeji (Representative, Kopernik Japan).
