Professor Keiichi Ogawa received eight Kobe University Secondary School students as interns. The theme of the internship program was ‘Global Human Resources Development` and it was conducted in Kobe University’s Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies (GSICS) from the 2nd to the 10th of October 2018.
Under the direct supervision of Professor Ogawa, the internship program was divided into two parts. The first part focused on the topic of preparation to become “global career people”. The second part focused on “sustainable development goals (SDGs) and education”. Some selected international students from the Ogawa seminar (zemi) provided assistance by delivering lectures and participating in workshops. Most of the lectures and workshops of the internship program were carried out in English.
On the final day of the internship, the Kobe University Secondary School students delivered group presentations on international organizations and their roles from a global perspective. The participating students were very impressed by the high-quality lectures and workshops. Personally, I believe this internship program has been successful in supporting the younger generation’s growth in a global setting, which is an important endeavor for the future.
