Something called “Global Festa Japan 2013” will be held during the first weekend of October in Tokyo at Hibiya Park. There will be films from the UNHCR 8th Annual Refugee Film Festival, a charity run, “talk shows” concerning various environmental issues, photo exhibits, musical performances, among many interesting and enjoyable events. NGOs representing numerous causes and issues will gather there, so it is an excellent chance for students who wish to take part in internships with domestic or international NGOs to see what’s available. Who knows…you might become inspired to change the world!
This YouTube video will give you an idea of what last year’s Global Festa looked like:
