Implementation Report

This year, the meeting was held face-to-face for the first time in four years, and the 11 presenting organizations expressed their enthusiasm for their projects and how to promote collaboration with the local community.
The judges asked sometimes tough but promising questions.
It was impressive to see the students eagerly taking notes on the questions and advice from the judges, and I felt their motivation.

FY Reiwa 5 Project Certification Ceremony

On Wednesday, July 19, a certification ceremony for the Reiwa 5th academic community collaboration project was held at Campus Plaza Kyoto, and the mayor of Kyoto Kadokawa issued certificates to the 11 organizations selected this year.
The mayor sent words of encouragement, saying, “I hope that the fusion of Kyoto’s proud regional capabilities with the power of universities and students will further revitalize the city of Kyoto,” and the representatives of each organization that received the certificate expressed their strong determination.
After the certification ceremony, the selection committee members gave advice and impressions to each organization one by one, and I think they got good advice and hints for their future activities!
From now on, the activities of each organization will start in earnest.
We will also announce it on the website of the University Consortium Kyoto, the university-regional collaboration portal site “GAKUMACHI STATION”, and facebook, so please pay attention to it!
