japan is now a hot spring of innovation
What’s going on in the land of the rising sun these days? A lot in terms of environmental development that’s for sure. The test launch of the roller coaster-like Eco Ride, the strengthening of NGOs world-wide, such as Peace Winds Japan, and not to mention the Eco-oriented high-tech plants blossoming in the Kansai (Osaka) region. Japan is now a hot spring of social and environmental innovation.
With all this activity buzzing around in Japan, i-genius thought it would be a good idea to mingle with a few of these aspiring and established social entrepreneurs. Noriko Saito, and her organisation Social Innovation Japan (a promotional partner and collaborator with i-genius) is hosting a Social Entrepreneur Gathering Event at the end of this week in Tokyo, inviting social innovators from around the world to attend.
I-genius’ Creative Director, Barry Crisp, will be attending the event to see who is doing what, and how. For a review of this gathering, be sure to read Barry’s next post at the end of the week.
