14th "We Are the Change" - Event in Tokyo!

By Chikara Ushiki | Project Manager

We are excited to announce and preparing for the upcoming our 14th “We are the change” event in Tokyo on April 21st.

The half-day session will feature:

(a)   Presentations by three Youth Venturer candidates, respectively working in vital areas such as disaster prevention, revitalization of the local fishery industry, and promoting diversity awareness. These presentations will be reviewed by a panel of three experts to determine the candidates’ eligibility for Youth Venture membership.

(b)   A keynote speech by our prominent Ashoka Fellow, David Green, who will share insights into his recent initiatives in the field of public health.

(c)   Updates from current Youth Venturers as they share their latest projects and achievements.

 

YVers are “rare species” who are app.one out of 120,000 high school students in ratio in Japan. The common denominator they have is the broader experiences and wider perspectives than average mono-culture Japanese have and some of them choose to enter US/UK colleges upon graduation. We have addressed the talent of changemaking they manifest being the talent/skills of the new era since 2010 but it still is not broadly understood and accepted in Japan. The core of educational disciplines stresses obedience slighting creativity and independent thinking. We plan to identify high schools in Japan that share similar vision as Ashoka in FY2024 to collaborate with them.
