Tokyo Global Society Weekly Report 001/ Feb 5, 2010

先週金曜日にリリースしたWeekly Reportのイントロ部分を紹介しますねー


Hello everyone!

Thanks so much for coming to the Tokyo Global Society meetings this week! It has been a pleasure to have all of you!

「東京グローバルソサエティの意義&明治維新再び」

Tokyo Global is really a completely new idea because we are doing things, not just talking. It is a project-based intercultural organization where foreign and Japanese students can talk to each other and come up with new marketable ideas. Why is this unique? The movement of ideas and products from country to country, from culture to culture- this alone creates value in global markets of today. We will be launching many projects related to education, business, the arts- finding ways to sell "Japan" to the world. Our possibilities are limitless!

In Japan today, I really think we are having a Second Meiji Restoration, as Inoue-san pointed out on Thursday. It is a time for great change, and it is up to us to come up with new ideas that can change Japan. The old system that our parents were under is collapsing and a new era is emerging. But we have to remember that it is ourselves that must help create this new era. We are the ones who decide what Japan's future will be. This is why Tokyo Global is so exciting- we are talking about Japan's future and creating it!

「素晴らしいMade in Japan-たくさんのアイデアをありがとう!!」

In this week's meeting there were many great ideas. (I won't be able to write them all, but I've tried my best!)

-Oka-san has talked about the importance of not just "global", but "international" perspective. Preserving "Japan" while going global. Finding value in "Japan" itself. He also talked about great Japanese poetry that foreigners can appreciate.
