Social Innovation for our future
Hands On Tokyo "Youth Summit"

Our "Youth Summit" is an event where high school students, university students, and young people in their 20s (youth) present their ideas for solving various issues under the theme of "social innovation," which focuses on social issues and working toward solutions.

This project started in February 2022, and teams of youth have been devising and implementing ideas that can solve problems in four areas: Children's Home, Special Needs, Poverty, and Environment.

At Youth Summit 2023, to be held in September, 2023, youth teams will compete for ideas to solve various social issues.
