Ritō Emerging Leaders (2016)


The Islands Society believes that emerging leaders from the remote islands of Japan should be given a global platform to share their insights on how we can improve the health and well-being of island communities around the world. Through the Ritō Emerging Leaders Program, the Islands Society recognizes college students and young professionals from different remote island communities in Japan. We then provide those individuals with an opportunity to share their insights on how the health and well-being of other island communities can be improved based on their own life experiences.
