Beyond borders CAMP 2023 Concluded

Beyond borders CAMP 2023 in Nepal has come to end.

Twelve athletes of different ages and backgrounds spent a week together in Nepal.

The Japanese and Nepalese teamed up together and deepened their connection through football at the Reale Cup.
The players had homestays and school visits, and had interactions with the local people that transcended language barriers.
On the other hand, they also encountered the reality of serious air pollution and inconvenient living conditions.

The week provided an opportunity to think about "connections between people" and "connections with the world".

 

Thank you to certified NPO Reale World, FC Reale and NPO Colorbath for their cooperation.

Attitude survey on 'international perspectives' among junior and senior high school students.

​Although many young people want to contribute to the international community, in the Survey on the Attitudes of Young People in Japan and Other Countries conducted by the Cabinet Office in 2008, Japanese young people's self-evaluation of their "international perspective" and their evaluation of Japanese policies were both the lowest among the seven countries covered. This highlights the gap between the thoughts and potential of Japanese youth and reality.

We would like to re-evaluate the views of Japanese youth, especially junior and senior high school students, on their 'international outlook' from the two perspectives of 'individual' and 'national policy', and consider what is needed to expand the potential of Japanese youth.

Logo renewed!!

t gives form to an unseen desire to increase the "total volume of connections" in the world.

 

The "B" and "b" in "Beyond borders" represent children's feet kicking a football,

The overlapping of the colours of the earth, which have no borders - the sea, sky, earth, plants and sun - eliminates the borders that we think "exist",

The hope and potential of the children will burst forth and spread across the world with the ball.

This is what we want to express in our logo.

We would like to take concrete steps towards the world that this logo represents.
