High School Collaborations
Kyoto University actively searches for young talented persons who can rise to the challenges, respond to issues and develop them on the international stage. To accomplish this, the university makes a strong effort for High-School-University cooperation in accordance with public-relations for entrance examination. CSEAS has supported the “Super Global High School Program” launched by MEXT since 2013 by sending faculty to the designated high schools as advisors. The SGH program aims at training global leaders to develop knowledge to solve global problems. For this purpose, the designated high-schools invite various scholars in universities inside and outside Japan to teach high school students. In August 2017, Kyoto University held an international conference on disaster cooperation between Japan and Southeast Asia. At that time, CSEAS held an international conference to discuss the common issues shared by Japan and Southeast Asian countries. Numerous high schools from around Japan participated to give and share in presentations disaster preventions, economic gaps, and health issues, which were followed by discussions with the scholars for Southeast Asia. In recent years CSEAS has also used documentaries to teach students about the various issues that Southeast Asia is experiencing. CSEAS aims to use different mediums through which to expand the range of interests young Japanese students can have in the world.
