"Let's think about sampo yoshi with Kyoto vegetables!~Do you know about Kyoto vegetables~" We

used "Kyoto vegetables" as one of the opportunities to think about "urban policy that utilizes art and culture," which was set as a new presentation theme this year, and approached the traditional culture of Kyoto, which is considered to have a high threshold, from the perspective of food culture that is relatively familiar. Participants will participate as consumers, and guest speakers will give lectures (producers and sellers) and have discussions, which will give them an opportunity to think about the good of the three ways.

Implementation Report

The 10th Policy Research Exchange Conference Advance Exchange Meeting

On Saturday, October 25, prior to the 10th Policy Research Exchange Conference from Kyoto (held on December 7), a preparatory exchange meeting was held by the student executive committee members to provide a place for exchange among presenters. At the exchange meeting, 59 participants, who gradually became acquainted through self-introductions and games, introduced their research in a friendly manner, providing an opportunity for presenters to take an interest in each other's themes and deepen exchanges that transcend university boundaries.


The 10th Policy Research Exchange Conference

This year's conference, which is now in its 10th year, encouraged the participation of students and graduate students from various universities as well as universities and graduate schools with policy faculties, such as "Urban Policy Utilizing Art and Culture" and "Urban Policy for Realizing Work-Life Balance," and a total of 64 groups (55 oral presentations and 9 panel presentations) gave presentations.
In the 10 thematic breakout sessions and panel presentation venues, research presentations in various fields related to urban policy were followed by questions by the judges, and the presenters responded with a nervous expression. In addition, listening to presentations by students from different universities researching the same field was a good opportunity for the presenters to be stimulated by each other.
In addition, on the day of the event, the student executive committee that manages the tournament held a project titled "Let's think about sampo yoshi with Kyoto vegetables!", and two guest speakers (producers and sellers) gave lectures, and participants (consumers) discussed the future of Kyoto vegetables.
At the award ceremony held at the end of the competition, the results of the judging were reviewed, and the Research Encouragement Award was awarded to the best presentations. The venue was filled with cheers every time the winners were announced.
Next year, we aim to hold the tournament as well, which will be a great learning experience for students.
