Детальний опис англійською:
Our mission is “Design Our Future.” We aim to create a better future with people from both developed and developing countries together. People have different views on development, depending on where they were born and raised and what they have experienced before. We hope the participants to build mutual understandings toward development and recognize global issues as common challenges.
In 2016, we designed our future by proposing innovative and local-oriented solutions for developing issues in the world. The forum focused especially on “Industrial Development vs Environmental Protection” as a theme, with 42 selected participants out of more than 1,000 applicants. Also, we invited professionals from various fields in which the valuable experience provided all participants with opportunities to build sustainable networks of future leaders in the field of international development and gain profound knowledge.
Despite of the great success in 2016, IDYF2017 will go beyond that of the previous forum by welcoming many highly motivated youths, who are willing to “design our future” with us in Tokyo, Japan.
In the forum, participants will be divided into 6 teams and each team will analyze one of the case studies and plan solutions. Case studies are as follows
- Garment Industry in Bangladesh
- Soybean Industry in Brazil
- Cut Flowers Industry in Kenya
- Those who are 18 to 28 years old
- Those who have not participated in previous IDYFs
- Fluency in English for discussion and presentation
- Must be able to attend all programs during the forum
f you are selected to participate in IDYF 2017, you will be required to pay 25,000 JPY, which covers your accommodation, meals, and transportation fees during the forum (March 12th to 19th 2017).
*It doesn’t include transportation fees from the airport to the venue, accommodation fee before and after the program, or insurance.
*Optional tour on 19th is not covered.
*Payment details will be announced after the results of the selection.
IDYF 2017 has two separate application types, one for self-funded candidates, and another for scholarship candidates. Note that you cannot apply for both.
Scholarships will be given to only one to three applicants with financial difficulties, which will cover
- Flight tickets
- Participation fee
Applicants who wish to apply for the scholarship must submit the application form for scholarship applicants, not the one for the self-funded applicants. Those who passed the document screening will be invited to Skype interview.
