Mottanai: Redefining Wastes
We often describe “Waste” as something disposable or defective but how often do we think before deciding a product’s lifespan? Or before calling it a waste in the first place?
This event is featuring individuals from different backgrounds who perceive wastes creatively and turn it into an eco-friendly gain for their community and environment while doing what they’re passionate about. Join us to learn how we can incorporate “Mottainai” concept into everyday life through speakers' experiences, discussions and practical workshops.

Since its inception in 1907, Tohoku University has been known for its ‘Open Door’ policy and was the first university to welcome foreign, and female, students within Japan. Tohoku University continues to attract great minds from all over the world, and conducts research of high quality. Although the University accepts a wide range of students, until now, it is still lacking an acclaimed, global platform for sharing ideas, inspiring stories and best practices.
TEDxTohokuUniversity, as individually organized branch of the famous TED talks, could provide this platform for the University and various stakeholders, within and outside the university. The main ideas behind TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) are to share multidisciplinary innovations, ideas and inspiring stories with a broad audience on and offline.
Our team believes that it is vitally important for a leading university to not only admit and teach students, and conduct research, but to also engage with the local community and create a meaningful impact through sharing knowledge and ideas. TEDxTohokuUniversity is an opportunity to connect members of the University with the wider public, to truly open up the doors of Tohoku University; we can create a platform to give back to and inspire, not only the Tohoku region, but the world. It will be a melting pot, where success and failure can come together to excite and educate future generations of the important lessons we learn today.
TEDxTohokuUniversity is separated into several teams such as Partner, Translation, Community Outreach, Production, Audience, Speaker, and Design. Below here are the faces of each member contributing to an enjoyable and beautiful event.
