Our sixth symposium was held at Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan on March 28th. We invited Mr. Toshihiro Menju, the commissioner of Japan Center for International Exchange, as our guest speaker. He gave us a lecture about "The choices of Japan, a depopulating society ? Should Japan accept immigrants?"
We held a panel discussion by 7 alumni members who work in various professions. They speak their experience. We had a wonderful time talking with KIP’s alumni and student members who have few chances to meet in other KIP activities.
Our fourth symposium was held at Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan on March 23rd. We, KIP Project members shared and proposed the awareness toward the phrase "Global Human Resource" in the present day. We have been working on this project for half a year since the September of the year 2012.
As preparation for the Hong Kong study trip of KIP project, we invited Mr. Inoue who usually trains business people to hold a custom-made workshop for KIP students. We learned useful techniques and methods for speech and debate, and trained our speaking skills to grab the audiences' interest. The stimulating workshop continued throughout 10 o' clock in the morning to 5 o' clock at noon on a beautiful Sunday. All the student participants had a great time and they look forward for the next opportunity for an English workshop.
Once a year KIP holds Symposium, where Project members introduces the results of their research. The theme of KIP Project this year was "Internationalization of Education" and "Lessons from 3.11 Earthquake".
