4日間の春分グローバルフォーラムを終えて/ Thank you for joining us in the world of AWAI

2021年3月18日から4日間にわたって開催された春分グローバルフォーラム「あわいから生まれてくるもの - 人と人ならざるものの交わり- 」が閉幕しました。

We were not sure how the theme of AWAI, which is very ambiguous and airy concept, would be received by the world, but at the end It was so beautiful that over 200 people internationally shared the moments with us and together explored what it means to be human from variety of perspectives towards a truly co-thriving future.


For the last two months, we have been deep in a greater flow, just listening the voice of something that is keen to be born in this world and just witnessing it emerging through us, with an egoless sense of Ba in words of Prof. Iba(a keynote speaker on DAY1)


It was very glad to hear heartwarming responses especially from those who live outside of Japan. Your words touched me so much. I offer my profound gratitude to all of you who joined, co-created and supported our forum, AND especially to interpreter team who made this precious international experience happen.


We think that this is just a beginning of a long journey. For those who could not join this time, we will prepare video archives accessible both in English and Japanese so look forward to them.


We hope to see and speak with you again


With warm thanks,


Forum Team
