Dear students from Ukraine,
Let us listen to your words. How the Russian invasion of Ukraine changed your lives.
Your opinion on this situation. What you want to convey to society.
We want to understand your thoughts and discuss how we can support Ukraine.
This forum will provide a place where students from Ukraine and Japanese can freely do so.
Holding this forum allows students to gain a deeper understanding of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, think of action plans to support Ukraine, and understand the impact of the crisis on society through a presentation by a guest speaker. Finally, students will have the opportunity to discuss and participate in action plans, encouraging further support for Ukraine.
On 7/30, we will hold a Zoom forum in which students around the globe, mainly from Japan, will gain a deeper understanding of the current situation of Ukraine. There will be a presentation and a Q&A with a guest speaker and a discussion of action plans by the students, followed by an optional participant meetup. After the forum, we will share the activities and action plans carried out voluntarily by participants and encourage the wider spread of such actions.
