JENESYS (Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths) Programme: Invitation of ASEAN youths who deal with climate change issues

September 8, 2010

  1. 14 youths from ASEAN member countries will visit Japan under JENESYS Programme from September 12 to 18.

  2. These youth members will exchange their views with officials of the Government of Japan and Japanese researchers.  They will also visit energy-saving facilities and facilities related to power generation in metropolitan and other areas.

  3. This is the first time to invite youth members working on climate change, under JENESYS Programme.  This program is expected, on the one hand, to deepen the understanding of ASEAN participants with regard to measures taken by Japan to tackle climate change, and, on the other hand, to establish a robust foundation for various types of cooperation on climate change between Japan and ASEAN member countries.
