Overcoming Friction and Creating New Worth in Africa
A Japanese Entrepreneur's Challenge that Changed the Lives of 250,000 People

There is all kinds of social friction in the world today, from discrimination to immigration problems, among other things. In order to not stand against this social friction, but rather to be a driving force to create new innovation, the "Public Ethics and Social Innovation in International Cooperation Activities" will hold a seminar series with the aim of overcoming social friction and creating new worth.

The first lecture in this series is entitled "Overcoming Friction and Creating New Worth in Africa - A Japanese Entrepreneur's Challenge that Changed the Lives of 250,000 People," and we have invited SATO Yoshiyuki, founder of Kenya Nuts Company and chair of Organic Solutions Japan, to speak with us.
