JENESYS 2.0: Science and Technology 6th Batch (Space) Students and Youth Exchange Programme (Thailand)
3 March 2014
From 3 March to 11 March, about 50 high-school students from Thailand are visiting Japan as part of a programme on the theme of “Science and Technology (Space)” under JENESYS 2.0.
Participants will first visit Tokyo to observe science and technology facilities as well as a Japanese company with advanced technology. Then they will visit Ibaraki Prefecture. In order to have a first-hand experience with the “Cool Japan” that is highly acclaimed and attracting a large attention in many fields, the participants will have an opportunity to feel the attractions of each prefecture on various aspects through visit to a local government, a local company and popular sights, and through cultural experience as well as exchange of views with local residents.
This programme is expected to enable youths in Thailand to deepen their understanding of and interest in Japanese values including its strengths and attractions as well as to disseminate their experiences to their home country.
