The World Congress of Global Partnership for Young Women 2016 takes place Monday, August 1 through Friday, August 12, 2016, in historic Seoul, South Korea. This year’s theme of “Creating Together: Capacity Building and Sustainable Development for Women” examines the concepts of women’s empowerment, capacity building, and sustainable development and women’s empowerment as a key process in achieving gender equality, and, through that, sustainable development, and the benefits to society as a whole. Important motifs of the Congress will be how concepts of women’s empowerment and sustainable development are inextricably tied together in terms of intra and inter-generational justice and, furthermore, what can be done, needs to be done, and is being done for women’s empowerment, both with regard to the building of a dedicated, enabling policy environment and means for enhancing women’s capacity as active change agents for sustainable development.
The Congress includes distinguished Panels in the following areas: ‘SDGs and Empowerment of Women’ and ‘Womenomics and Transformation’. Additionally, the Congress will host a Presidents’ Round Table dedicated to ‘Global Partnership among Universities’ as well as a Poster Session and Special Session, Student Contests (in the areas of ‘Career and Development’, ‘Health and Nutrition’,‘Information and Communications Technology’, and ‘Art and Design’), General and Selective Training, Field Trip, and Korean Cultural Night, all interspersed with multiple opportunities for networking. The Congress brings together leading scholars and researchers, prominent business leaders, and other renowned dignitaries to address critical women’s empowerment issues in contemporary society, and in particular developing world societies
Promising young women who are selected for participation will have the opportunity to not only engage the luminaries who will grace the Congress with their presence, but also to participate in various Student Contests. The Congress pushes the boundaries of women’s empowerment studies, explores core concepts and ideas, and creates new conceptual configurations for women’s empowerment – all of which shapes interdisciplinary discourses.

The Kyushu University Summer Program, later renamed Asia in Today’s World (ATW), was first launched in 2011. From its inception, the seven-week program was offered intensive, rigorous undergraduate-level courses addressing the past, present, and future of Asia. Each year ATW hosts some 40 participants from leading universities of all over the world including Asia, North and South America, and Europe.
Kyushu University, home to ATW, itself dates from 1911, when it was founded as one of Japan’s original seven imperial universities. It has grown considerably in its first 100 years and now includes 11 undergraduate schools, 18 graduate school, four research institutes and a hospital. total student enrollment currently exceeds 19,300, while instructional staff number over 2,000. Some 2,100 international students from more than 90 countries are studying presently at Kyushu University.
Kyushu University is located in Fukuoka, a pleasant coastal city of 1.5 million people and the largest metropolis on the island of Kyushu. Thanks to its favorable location close to China and Korea, the city has prospered as Japan’s gateway to continental Asia from ancient times. In light of Fukuoka’s special history and strategic position, Kyushu University has made a focus on Asia of its educational mission.
ATW Academic Program
The ATW curriculum design provides a uniquely productive educational experience relating Asian Studies courses (ASC) to Japanese Language courses (JLC) in a synergistic learning opportunity for students. As they broaden and deepen their knowledge and appreciation of Japan and its neighboring countries through the ASC offerings, students are made aware of the various sociocultural contexts of communication, thereby enhancing their synthetic understanding of the Japanese language as developed in the JLC.
The program requires students to enroll for credit in two of four available Asian Studies offerings (see below) and in one skill level-appropriate Japanese Language course. Selections should accord with student’s home university study plan. Those who satisfy all ATW expectations will be awarded a certificate of program completion in recognition of their effort.
Asian Studies Courses
The Asian studies course component distinguishes ATW as a more comprehensive academic program that complements the study of Japanese language with edifying lectures on Japan’s sociocultural conditions and characteristics. Course topics are not limited to the Japanese scene but cover as well Asia more broadly and the Pacific region, which increasingly are playing a central role in the world. It is an valuable feature of the curricular variety that students are enabled to learn about Asia and Japan in multiple respects and from different perspectives.
ATW’s Asian Studies courses, taught in English, are presented by eminent scholar-specialists invited from around the world. ASC offerings planned for the 2016 program are follows:
