Global School Program, August 2 - October 20, 2010
In response to the growing numbers of young people in Japan who, stifled by the society's tendency to demand conformity, have become isolated in their homes and are unable to attend school and/or workplaces, Peace Boat has launched its "Global School Program". This special course onboard for such young people, which explores and celebrates the differences and diversity in the world, encourages and supports its participants to look at themselves, their lives and Japan from a global perspective and gain confidence for their next steps.
