World Youth Meeting in Nagoya 2000


1. Our Purpose
     The development of the internet and other new media these days are probably changing overseas interactions in schools, organizations or individual bases. We hold "World Youth Meeting" in order to introduce to people the new ways of overseas interactions, and to give opportunities to the youth to meet the youth from all over the world, and exchange information, and be friends to each other.
     In Japan, information technology education will begin at school in 2001. A new subject called "Joho(information)" will be introduced at high schools, and will be required. This change shows the government's big concern for the new information technology age.
     Another new subject called "Sougotekina Gakushuu no Jikan(the classes for integrated studies)" is also introduced to primary, junior, senior high schools for the students' spontaneous activities.
     More and more teachers around the world use the internet for their education, and collaborative classes or activities are becoming more popular.
     We believe that these backgrounds make "World Youth Meeting" more important.
