From the Foundation

Online Luncheon Seminar 2021: "Ethics and Logics of International Collaborative Projects"

update:September 16, 2021

The Toyota Foundation's International Grant Programこのリンクは別ウィンドウで開きます has been providing grants under the theme of "Cultivating Empathy Through Learning from Our Neighbors: Practitioners' Exchange on Common Issues in Asia". We support projects in which people from diverse backgrounds and multiple sectors work together as colleagues to tackle the issues that Asian societies are facing and build partnerships that lead to social changes.

While there are projects handling a wide range of themes and methods, there should be certain ethics and logics (philosophies, ways of thinking, points of implementation, common obstacles, etc.) that all projects will face when implementing international collaborative projects. In this series of seminars, we will not only introduce the content of the projects, but also discuss the underlying ethics and logics of these projects in depth with experts, and disseminate the content to those who are interested in.


The series of events are live-streamed for registered participants. Later its full archive and digest movies are available on our YouTube channelこのリンクは別ウィンドウで開きます.
The digest movie of the 1st session dubbed in English is available below.
