Social Innovation Japan: Reshaping The Way We Work
Meet some of Japan's leading Social Innovators on 16th March 2018! In recent years, there's been a dramatic increase in the number of individuals, organisations and companies tackling social and environmental issues in Japan. Entrepreneurs, nonprofit organisations, and big businesses continue to find innovative ways to address the defining issues of our time, from climate change to the refugee crisis and beyond.
At Social Innovation Japan's event on 16th March, two leading figures in this movement will be exploring the theme "Reshaping The Way We Work" at the new and exciting space in Shibuya, EDGEof.
Japan is at a crossroads: an ageing population, hollowing out of rural areas and rapidly changing needs in the labour market. Join us as we examine how industry leaders are responding to these challenges, what opportunities are out there, and what this means for all of us in the years ahead.
- Discover how social entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and startups in Japan are pioneering the transition towards a more sustainable, responsible, and prosperous future.
- Learn from leading innovators who are addressing important issues facing Japan and the wider world.
- Connect with like-minded people from all over the world, from different professional, personal, and educational backgrounds.

About Social Innovation Japan
Social Innovation Japan is a community of problem-solvers, thinkers, and doers. We provide a space for enrichment through the exchange of ideas, by organising events where guest speakers talk about their high-impact work in a variety of fields. Presentations are fun, casual, and to-the-point, and are designed to engage audiences in contemporary issues in Japan and the world. Talks are always followed by Q&A / panel sessions, so that all participants have a chance to speak their mind and ask questions. There is free time at the end of each event for participants to mingle, discuss ideas, or just relax in the company of good people.
