On September 24, three students participated in an event called "High Level Conservation with First Ladies and World Leaders on Ocean Conservation" as panelists. The event was held at Asia Society in New York City.
The students all spoke based on their personal experiences as well as their academic research.
The event was attended by such dignitaries as First Lady of Japan Ms. Akie Abe, First Lady of Australia Ms. Jenny Morrison, the wife of President of the World Bank Ms. Adele Malpass and Amb. Caroline Kennedy.
We would like to extend our most sincere appreciation to the organizer and the moderator for this event Sailors for the Sea Japan and its president Ms. Minako Iue for giving our students such a wonderful opportunity.
