Sub-regional Node for Northeast Asia

The Environmental Innovators program, Keio University (Japan) is a graduate school program devoted to research on climate change mitigation and adaptation. It was founded in 2010 expressly to create an educational environment that would support development of future Environmental Leaders in Asia and Africa. The program is built around the concept that true environmental innovation cannot be achieved without building up practical experience in the field, and students are therefore required to undertake internships and fieldwork as well as more typical academic studies. In 2011 Keio University became the host for the Northeast Asia region APAN node. Its students and professors will take part as active contributors and participants of the network, conduct research, and act as facilitators between practitioners and communities in need of support in the face of climate change.
