Personal and professional development on the theme “Sustainability Community Design” and the “Leadership” were expected. Before I came to Japan, I had read all the handouts which were sent from AITSS team about the theme study on “Sustainability Community Design”, especially “One village One Product” movement which is the overall element of the theme. It was taken an initiative and led by Hiramatsu, the former-governor of Oita prefecture. Moreover, I filled all the information which required by AITSS’s team such the presentations and clearly understood and learnt more about the situation in my own country before I arrived to Japan.
Each seminar cause me to obsess and explore more about theme, the first seminar, it deeply detailed on “One village One Product” and Japanese politics which fundamental to develop the country, all the citizen have to understand about the trend of politics and commitment of government about the creative ideas to encourage local products and be the prosperous nation. Followed up by LOHAS, Agritourism, sustainable environment, disaster mitigation and preparedness. Additionally, Education system is a pillar of human development. The concept of leadership from Sochiro Handa, founder of Honda automobile company “Leader develop human resource and be equal”.
One of the greatest experiences I stayed with a family where I could be joyful with Japanese food and understand the normal life of Japanese people. Furthermore, I have never forgotten the Japanese volunteers who empowered me to learn and enable the relationship that are more than I expected. I do high value this culture, nation, and especially the people.
I took my heart to observe and study all activities in the program which led to grow my knowledge on the way to coordinate the program from IATSS’s team and their commitment. From my opinion, to well foster in real development, a community should have a dynamic team, solidarity work, commitment, creativities and environment preservation.
