In order to improve this, we will investigate and exchange opinions on the "Town Porch," a space where anyone can gather, mainly in Shimogyo Ward, create a map, and hold a "Town Engawa" event. By doing so, we aim to revitalize regional ties by having local people recognize and participate in the "town veranda".

Implementation Report

24 Public presentation (second screening)

On Saturday, June 30, 2012, a public presentation of the "Heisei 24 Gakumachi Collaboration Project (University Regional Collaboration Model Creation Support Project)" was held at Campus Plaza Kyoto to support initiatives aimed at regional revitalization in Kyoto City in collaboration with universities and local organizations.
This project has been held every year since Heisei 16, and this year is the ninth time. In addition to the presenting groups, a total of 80 visitors listened to their presentations in order to get a glimpse of the students' rich ideas and the ideas of local collaboration.
This year, there were 13 applications, and 12 organizations that passed the first round gave presentations. Of these, several projects were selected as subsidized projects (up to 300,000 yen / 1 project), but all of them were wonderful initiatives for regional revitalization.
Kyoto City and the University Consortium Kyoto will continue to support these vibrant initiatives of the university and the region, hoping that they will produce great results!


24 Business certification ceremony

Of the 13 projects that applied this year, 7 were certified as eligible projects and 1 as incentive projects, and a certification ceremony was held at Kyoto City Hall on Wednesday, July 11, 2012. Mayor Kadokawa of Kyoto City presented certificates to the representatives of each project.


Heisei 24 Certified Business Report Meeting

The 24th academic town collaboration certification business report meeting and the 25th year business recruitment briefing session were held on Saturday, April 6, 2012 at Campus Plaza Kyoto.
On the day of the event, not only students and university officials, but also many general citizens attended, and eight organizations adopted in the 24th academic year reported their activities.
In the course of planning and operating various initiatives in the region, we have faced many issues, and the results of the project will be a great asset for both students and the community, and I believe that we can utilize them in future activities.
I hope that such initiatives will be carried out on an ongoing basis, not one-offs, and that new businesses will be created and a cycle of revitalization will circulate in each ward of Kyoto City!
