【Finished】Kyoto Student Festival 2016 Regional Revitalization Project Call for Collaborating Organizations

Overview of the business

Students in Kyoto, who transcend the boundaries of universities, form an executive committee and engage in daily activities with the aim of disseminating "Kyoto as a city of students" to society in cooperation with the business community, government, local communities, and universities, further revitalizing the Kyoto area, and creating new attractions.
After various community exchange activities throughout the year, such as the promotion of the original creative odori "Kyoen Sodefure!" and community collaboration events, the grand main festival is held every October as the culmination of these activities.
The University Consortium Kyoto has set the goal of "student growth" in the daily activities of the Student Executive Committee, and provides support aimed at "student independence" in which students themselves can think and act on their own, and supports them so that they can maximize what they have accumulated in the course of their activities for one year since the establishment of the Executive Committee in November every year at this festival in October.

FY2016 Regional Revitalization Project

The Kyoto Student Festival has a strong image of a festival centered on odori held in the Okazaki area every October, but in addition to this, we also carry out various activities on a daily basis, such as regional and international exchange, with the aim of "spreading the charm of Kyoto" and "revitalizing the region." However, in order to further realize activities in line with these objectives, it is necessary to have a partner who can work hand in hand, not just the Kyoto Student Festival Executive Committee.
Therefore, we will recruit organizations (collaborators) who want to "enliven the community together with students" and "want to further convey the appeal of the region with the perspective and power of students" and promote collaborative projects for a single year. However, the Kyoto Student Festival Executive Committee is also limited in terms of budget, time, and competence, and it is expected that the organizations that have applied for the festival will not be hired, or that the number of organizations that will be hired may be extremely small. Although we are in this situation, we are waiting for organizations that can feel the significance of "Kyoto as a student city" created by industry, academia, and public regions in collaboration and apply to realize their goals.
