Recruiting Japanese Participants for the TOMODACHI FIRST Program
TOMODACHI Food Innovation for Regional Sustainability in Tohoku (FIRST) Program invests in the future of food innovation in Japan, with particular focus on the Tohoku region. This program grows the leadership and cross-cultural skills within the next generation of Japanese (from university students to age 35), who are committed to social innovation in the production, processing, distribution, and/or consumption of food in Japan.
From May 1 to May 13, 2017, approximately 10 participants from Tohoku will travel to Seattle, Washington and take part in a two-week training that amplifies their capacity to transform the food system in Tohoku and throughout Japan.
