In this meeting, all participants of the Training Course in Tokyo and staff met together for the first time. It was a good opportunity for participants to get to know each other, share their expectations, thoughts and to increase their motivation to the Training Course.
As “ScoreAll 17 Manual” contains very rich in content and excellent, we decided to create a Japanese version and will utilize it for participants to understand the contents adequately as well as English one. This could make use of a wide variety of interests in SDGs through sport in and out of our university in Japan.
