Are You Japanese?

PRESENTED ON APR 22, 2009
IN TOKYO @ VOL 61

An interesting presentation on nationality! Although PechaKucha is primarily design focused we welcome great presentations like this. Akira Uchimura is the project coordinator for the Nippon Foundation Nikkei Scholarship, a scholarship for Japanese descendants from Latin America, Philippines and Indonesia. His father is Japanese and his mother is Chilean. His lifetime goal is to become the bridge between Latin America and Japan through community trade, agroforestry support and cultural exchange. He also plans to start an NPO next year in Latin America, called "Kizuna Earth Project."
