Final Presentation “Open Forum”
At the end of the final day, an Open Forum will be held with residents of the town. During this forum, we will present the results of the Academy, after which a session will be held called ‘I Commit‘, in which all participants are invited to make a written declaration of their commitment to protecting their families, their communities, and themselves. Through both the Academy and the Open Forum, we aim to encourage many people to become engines of post-disaster recovery along the Tohoku coast.
