Israel and Japan explore social entrepreneurship E-mail

The International Symposium on Social Entrepreneurship in Israel and Japan was held on 15 November at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) in Roppongi, Tokyo.

Ayelet Shaked, Israel’s Minister of Justice, was the special guest during her timely visit to Japan in the same week.

One of the many topics she spoke about was “HELP!”, a smart phone application that promotes volunteerism and mutual responsibility. She said it was an example of social innovation initiatives in Israel, which is known as a startup nation.

The main lectures were by two social innovation experts: Professor Nir Tsuk from Israel (Guest Professor of Social Entrepreneurship at King’s College London and the University of Osaka) and Professor Toshiya Tsujita from Japan (Associate Professor at the Center for the Study of Co* Design, Social Innovation Division, Osaka University).
