Global Education

Raising global citizens in local communities!

There are many individuals in Yamagata Prefecture who provide technical assistance in developing nations and work as volunteers to improve local lifestyles, as well as individuals who conduct various activities in the local community from a global perspective.

The 21st century is an era that requires people of the world to join hands to tackle different global issues. To accomplish this, it is desirable for the number of “global citizens capable of acting locally with a worldly perspective” noted above to increase.

We offer a variety of programs to raise global citizens in our community through seminars for residents and school education centering on the “integrated study period” that began in 2002.
