Japan is not exactly known for having a thriving social entrepreneurship scene, but the times they are a-changing, and the guys behind the new Social Innovation Japan project are responsible for connecting some of the dots. At their latest event, three leading figures – Allison Baum (Fresco Capital), Mio Yamamoto (World in Tohoku) and Taj Campbell (Continuum) – will share their experiences, future visions and lessons learnt along the way. It's a socially and environmentally conscious networking event, so to speak. If you're interested in Japan's future and how it may be shaped in a more sustainable way, this might just be your cup of tea. Note that no tickets will be sold on the door – get yours in advance here.
Also note that you'll have to pass through barriers to get to the DMM office on the 24st floor (the event location); your ticket will have a barcode that will allow you to get into the building.
