Proposal Competition for Super Mature Society

In advance of this camp, RAs, divided into nine teams, extracted issues related to super mature society and carried out field work. On the first day of the camp, RAs discussed the solutions to the issues extracted by each team with the professors, mentors, and graduates, and brushed up the ideas. Finally, RAs completed their proposals in Japanese and English and gave presentations about that in English.

An Idea of the Winning Team

They have made a proposal with the vision of promoting and improving employment of people with disabilities. In the final competition, they proposed a scheme using Social Impact Bond (SIB) to actively utilize private resources and enhance labour conditions, including their wages. SIB is a mechanism which governments outsource projects for solving social problems as pay-per performance type, financing from private sectors.
