Collection home page


Organizer: Center for Sustainability Science (CENSUS)


Social Entrepreneurship, as represented by social ventures, is aimed at resolving social challenges through business enterprises. As such, social entrepreneurs are expected to play an important role in the rebuilding of disaster-affected areas in the Tohoku region, which suffered unprecedented damage during the “Tohoku Region Pacific Coast Earthquake” and subsequent tsunami. Rebuilding in the aftermath of the disaster, through the establishment of enterprises in affected areas, will create employment for the survivors and enable them to rebuild their livelihoods, and ultimately lead towards the creation of a sustainable society. There has never been a more urgent need to develop the human resources necessary for this mission.
This symposium will focus on the role(s) and potential of social entrepreneurship in disaster-affected areas, ideally leading to the creation of sustainable social systems and making them available to disaster victims. Keynote speakers will talk about their experiences with social entrepreneurship in developing countries. Then, those who are engaged in supportive activities in the Tohoku region will report on condition in the disaster-affected areas as well as on the actual needs of the disaster victims. And finally, a discussion will be held with representatives of private companies on the traits considered essential for social entrepreneurs to create sustainable societal systems that accurately reflect victims’ needs, and on development of the necessary human resources to achieve such entrepreneurship.
