Leandro (Brazil) (Took part in Sosei Partners- Tono):

By engaging foreigners who live in Japan, this organization promotes rich discussions, cultural exchange and tries to look for problems of local regions which are seeking for improvements with the help and advice of people of different backgrounds, certainly a valuable experience in a world where differences are to be more understood.

I had the chance to participate in one of the projects, where a group of 12 people from different nationalities helped rethink the local tourism in Tono, a small, rural city in Iwate Prefecture. I am sure that with our different points of view, we could collaborate and provide local authorities with a wider knowledge that they can further use to engage the local community in their planning decisions.
