The Japanese Students Association of Webster University invites everyone to Hope for Japan: Rebuilding for Our Common Future [PDF flier] on Friday, April 8.

Three events are planned in support of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami victims, and the panel discussion will be webcast at webster.edu/theglobalforum.

More details are available at Global Thinking, or you can find new details below:

Hope For Japan aims to inspire support for Japan (including disaster relief fundraising); and to build solidarity (連帯意識) between Japanese students and young people of all nationalities. The panel will provide updates about Japan’s rebuilding process; media coverage of the disaster and its aftermath; the future of nuclear power plants in Japan; and the impact of the disaster on the psychology of Japanese youth.
