Tokyo NODAI will host the 20th International Students Summit on Food, Agriculture and Environment (ISS) online.

 

Tokyo NODAI will host the 20th International Students Summit on Food, Agriculture and Environment (ISS) online.

Annually since the first ISS in 2001, the participating students from all over the world would gather at Tokyo NODAI or our global partner universities. Due to the pandemic, we were not able to host it in 2020. We are now glad to announce that it will be held fully online in 2021. 58 students representing 27 universities from 25 countries and regions around the world will engage in heated discussions online.

This year’s ISS theme is “Linking Actions, Research and Education in Agriculture Value Chains to Achieve Environmental, Social and Economic Sustainabilities.” In consideration of time difference among the countries and the local internet situations, the presentations by the students will be broadcasted in advance on demand, while group discussions will be held live in the morning and early evening (Japan time).

The presentation videos will be available in the beginning of September, and the entire program of the ISS (the 130th anniversary commemorative symposium ~Tokyo NODAI into a New Era with the Collaboration with Partner Universities ~ on Tuesday, September 14, and the group discussion sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, September 15 and 16) will be open to the public.

The information will be posted on the website in August, and we are looking forward many of your participation!
