India- Japan Youth Forum is a non-profit organisation under the aegis of Global Youth. The Forum aims to provide a platform for university-level students to engage in dialogue and discussion on matters concerning India and Japan, along with creating a space for conducting an assortment of cultural activities, to promote friendship and cross-cultural understanding amongst the youth of both the nations.
The vision of the Forum is to freely connect, interact and be able to brainstorm with our fellow students, and thus, establish a mutual feeling of trust and alliance. We also envisage expanding our endeavours to facilitate student exchanges, cultural events and provide a plethora of invigorating experiences for each of our members.
Our past events include, 'Chat with A Diplomat' with Political Minister, Mr Kumagai from the Embassy of Japan, New Delhi and a collaborative event titled 'People-to-people-exchanges' with the Japan Foundation at the India International Centre, which witnessed Mr Kousuke Noguchi, Director of Japanese language at the Japan Foundation, as one of its speakers. The Forum holds a cordial relationship with the Embassy and the Japan Foundation and organises events involving both the organisations.
