New Paradigms for Social Innovation: U.S.-Japan Perspectives (Invite Only)

January 23
9:30 am – 3 pm

By invite only.  Held at Keio Mita Campus G-SEC Lab (6th floor, East Research Building).

The U.S.-Japan Innovators Project brings emerging as well as established Japanese and American leaders in business, civil society, and arts and culture together to explore new opportunities for bilateral collaboration in the 21st century. This symposium, the first of several Society produced events in Japan during Japan Society’s 100th anniversary celebration (2007-08), and also one of the events during Keio University’s 150th anniversary celebration (2008), brings Project participants and others together to discuss the role social entrepreneurs play in Japan and the United States in addressing challenges and issues of common concern to both countries in a global context.
