Japan Foundation’s EYES Project on Diversity and Human Mobility 2017-2018

Philippine LGBT Chamber of Commerce Chair, Brian Tenorio, joins Fellows from India, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, and Thailand for the “EYES for Embracing Diversity : Human Mobility and Diversity” programme of the Japan Foundation

Part 1 – Indonesia Program November 26 to December 2, 2017
Part 2 – Japan Program June 2018

Overview of the program

From the Japan Foudnation Office: The Japan Foundation Asia Center is carrying out a collaborative project in Southeast Asia and Japan called “EYES for Embracing Diversity” (hereafter referred to as the EYES Project). Rather than an intolerant society that rejects others who vary from oneself due to the differences in ethnic groups, races, religions, and nationalities that one encounters here and there around the world, including in Asia, this program represents an effort to support the formation of an inclusive society where every individual respects diversity, relishes in each other, and enhances one another’s value. Geared toward the next generation of leaders who seek to achieve a society that embraces diversity, the project sends out
messages of diversity.

The EYES Project is a collaborative project that draws together strategists involved with diversity in Asia, primarily Southeast Asia, to Indonesia and Japan. There, they learn about the diversity in their respective countries, understand and analyze local problems, and propose solutions to those problems.
