The Japan NPO Research Association's 23 Research Conference

Ten years have passed since the tragic Great East Japan Earthquake.

Since then, a vast array of non-profit organizations (NPOs) have proliferated.

Under this context, the Japan NPO Research Association will hold its 23 Research Conference from June 19 to 20. The conference will feature discussions on the past, present and future of the NPO sector and share findings from NPO research and practices, both from overseas and across Japan.

Panels and presentations will focus on a wide range of topics such as how to work in NPOs, training and education, management, fundraising, and social enterprise and sustainability.

The event also includes a public symposium entitled "The Current State of the Nonprofit Sector," an international panel discussing NPO education at universities, and a special program that features dialogue with NPO leaders in the coastal areas of the Tohoku Region.

The sessions below are open to the public and free of charge.
