55,000 Participants from All Over the World Attended the SAAB2021, Where Failure was not an Option, and Supported by Current and Former Students!
The 7th SEISA Africa Asia Bridge 2021 (SAAB) was held on Saturday, November 13th, 2021, connecting New York, Uganda, Senegal, Myanmar, more than 40 local venues and sites across Japan, in addition to the homes across the country. This was the largest SEISA learning festival ever, and the event was a great success.
The main venue, JICA Yokohama - the second venue, the high school/university collaboration project, the on-demand delivery, and the online exhibition, were all supported by “TechRaft” which is a media work group of SEISA Kokusai Hachioji students and graduates. Under the watchful eyes of the people who help us on a daily basis and the respective guests from the embassies, the TechRaft supported the operation of SAAB (held online), which also went on to win the Japan representative for a "UNESCO Japan ESD Award", under extremely high tension, where mistakes were not allowed, unlike in a normal class.
TechRaft has been organizing (and commercializing) the filming, distribution, stage sound, recording, drone aerial photography and other activities that we have been doing as a seminar class since the students graduated. Under the slogan of "Crossing the sea of media contents with our connected skills", we are taking on requests from all over Japan. SAAB is not just a school event, but also a chance for students, graduates and staff of SEISA to make a difference in the lives of people across the country.
'Make your interest and love your job'. We are amazed at the growth and development of our students as they take on the challenges of the big stage, and we are also impressed by the many things they learn. We hope that SEISA will be a place where students can learn from their experiences. Please keep an eye on the activities of TechRaft!
