LEAP DAY, the DAY when people active in various walks of life gather and send out their thoughts to all over the world from Japan.
It is going to happen in OKINAWA.
With social impact and human resource training as two pillars, people from start-ups to large corporations, adults to students that will shoulder the future will take off through various sessions.
Furthermore, many guests including investors, entrepreneurs and innovators, who are active in Japan and the world will be present to witness the awakening of LEAP DAY 2018.
An outdoor event with a next generation concept including music and food events will also be held.
LEAP DAY is an innovation festival that will awaken your spirit.
The word “LEAP” is defined as springing through the air or jumping, but it is the word used to describe the giant step for mankind when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. With such meaning, we have named the day to take a giant leap as “LEAP DAY,” which has continued to evolve as a venue for sending out innovations from Okinawa ever since 2013.
From 2018, we have decided to hold LEAP DAY in the center of Naha City. We will start out holding the event over 2 days, but it will be expanded in both size & area and period.
The theme for LEAP DAY 2018 is…
“Create the Future – awakening –”
Here, we have included the implication of, “It’s about time to wake up!”
The world evolves and grows with tremendous momentum. Progress in technology, the remarkable development in Asian countries, etc. How is Japan’s growth compared to the world?
Isn’t it about time to re-recognize Japan’s world-class virtue, unbind ourselves from past glories and old practices, and seriously start to evolve?
With the spirit of, “own the action, don’t wait for someone else to act,” let us, who lives today, turn the future into a better society so it will not make victims out of the children who will live the future.
