Through the four advanced minor programs of its graduate schools, "Global Coexistence," "Human Security and Development," "Legal Interpretation and Translation," and "Contemporary Chinese Studies," the Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL) of Osaka University seeks to nurture practical-minded personnel who, with a conscious grasp of coexistence, can make contributions to international society.

As a first step to achieve "a shift from learning to putting [something] into practice," a goal of the minor advanced programs, a GLOCOL Presentation Contest has been scheduled. Through this event, GLOCOL aims to give students a platform for making proposals based on what they have studied at university. Concrete and sincere proposals made by presenters may be adopted and supported by GLOCOL and the university; moreover, GLOCOL will help publicize such proposals to society. Students making such presentations will receive productive advice from the judges. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in this contest.

Presentation theme: Choose one from the following:

  • "A Proposal from Osaka University -- in order to Realize Coexistence between People of Different Cultures"
  • A Proposal from Osaka University -- in order to Communicate with and Understand one another"
  • A Proposal from Osaka University -- in order to Protect your Safety and Mine"

Organizers hope that many will attend and listen to proposals from students for coexistence between people of different cultures.

Date: 2010-12-16 (Thu) 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
