Sophia University’s Center for Global Discovery will host a symposium Feb. 28 offering advice for people of all ages on how to boost their skills for the global market.

“Become an Active Global Citizen” will take place at the university’s Yotsuya Campus. It will begin with a report on the CGD’s achievements over the three years since its establishment and outlook for future projects.

Headline events at the symposium will include lectures by global leaders such as Mbuli Charles Boliko, director of the Japan Liaison Office of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. He and others will speak about their experiences in global business.

Speakers will share their experiences of overcoming challenges while working and living overseas and give insights into what they have learned.

The symposium will be held in English and French with simultaneous translation in Japanese.

It lasts from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the university’s Yotsuya Campus at 7-1 Kioicho, Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo, Building No. 2, Room 2-1702, and will be followed by a reception.
