"The Largest Learning Festival in History", Connecting Japan to the World.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation, SEISA Africa Asia Bridge, which was first held in 2015, is now in its 8th year. Last year, we were again under the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, but through the children's cumulative efforts and actions in holding the event online, about 37,000 people, including people from the UNDP (United Nations Development Programme) in distant New York, Republic of Uganda, Republic of Senegal, and Republic of the Union of Myanmar, were able to participate and exchange in the event and opened the door to a new world.
Prior to this event, the global perspective that we could offer to the children were still vague, and the changes that were occurring in front of them did not seem to have become a part of their lives. However, participating in each event, the children began to develop a sense of responsibility, and the event has now grown to be recognized as one of the most leading ESD (Education for Sustainable Development) campaigns in Japan..The founder, the late Honorary Chairman Mr. Yasuo Miyazawa, hoped to plant the seeds of KYOSEI (living together in harmony) in the hearts of children through this event. These seeds have germinated beautifully, and some of them seem to be blooming into large flowers. This year, I hope that the baton will be passed on to the children who will lead the next generation, while revising the significance of this event, which we have named "Bond the Bridge” .
We hope that more young people, whose hearts are close to each other despite the distance, will grow up in Japan and in the countries of Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, and that they will connect and engage in peace-making and nation-building as friends. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
Chairperson of SEISA Group
This SEISA Africa Asia Bridge initiative is an opportunity for SEISA colleagues, who have kept the 3 commitments of "Understand Each Other", "Leave Nobody Out" and "Make Friends", to demonstrate the results of their efforts to learn, think and act together about Africa and Asia over the years. It is also an opportunity to understand deeply what kind of society the world is aiming for by achieving the SDGs (17 international goals for sustainable development) by 2030.
Currently, we are facing unpredictable situations such as the conflict between the U.S. and China and the conflict in Ukraine.
In times like these, we need to think about what KYOSEI (living together in harmony), sustainable society and peace really mean. Undoubtedly, this is the era in which people who have received education based on the SEISA philosophy of "creating a world in which people live together based on mutual respect（ for each other） in pursuit of world peace" must be active in their careers.
In 2022, as in the previous year, due to the spread of the COVID-19, the SAAB will be held as a hybrid event of both in-person and online. With the enthusiasm and efforts of our colleagues at SEISA, we hope that SAAB will be held with even greater breadth and depth, making full use of the online advantage of having a large number of participants from Japan and abroad.
We hope that all participants will understand that SAAB embodies the educational philosophy of late former President, Mr. Miyazawa and that they will experience the various exhibits and events while imagining that children with the SEISA spirit will spread to other parts of Japan and the world and transmit the concept of " Harmony of the global world".
