Japan is the only country in the world to suffer from atomic bombs and a nuclear power disaster. Energy is a major issue in the world today so it is important to learn about and discuss this issue together. For this program participants students are from universities in the USA, France, Germany, Turkey, Indonesia and Vietnam. These are countries which already use nuclear power or are considering it.

No expertise in nuclear physics is required.

The program will also include Japanese cultural activities, a 3-day home stay and opportunities to have exchange with Japanese students.
