Sachiko Kuno Foundation, Inc.


Our mission is to foster understanding on global issues and to generate ideas and solutions by stimulating the innate ability and productivity of individuals. In each semester we focus on a theme such as “Climate Change”, “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”, “Leadership”, etc. by inviting experts and entrepreneurial exerting leaders in diverse fields to be guest lecturers. In the meantime, students are encouraged to carry out activities in various ways that contribute to the theme of the lectures. We also aspire to build a network of personal contacts between students and lecturers as well as to enforce the growth of the social entrepreneurship ecosystem in Kyoto and beyond.
