update：February 16, 2018
The second round of the Dialogue sessions was held in Bangkok joined by Hiroki Koyama (D15-N-0027), Shin Muramatsu (D16-N-0162), Tadamori Fujisawa (D16-N-0033) hosted by Kotchakorn Voraakhom (D17-N-0049)
Like in the Philippines’ program in January, the program officers of the Toyota Foundation joined the dialogue and the participants argued the uniqueness of the Foundation as well as meaning of grantees’ networking beyond their projects.
While the issues of the granted projects of the International Grant Program vary, its approach to them is common; mutual exchanges beyond borders and sectors. The participants of the Bangkok program well understood the point and also mentioned the importance of communication with program officers of the Toyota Foundation.
The final session will be held in Sendai, Japan in late March and their opinions in the dialogues will be published later.
