Chief Program Officer
Yuji manages the foundation and operation of an intermediary financial group to support reconstruction assistance in the areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami. He also coordinates young volunteer work groups to help with the immediate aftermath of the events. Yuji has travelled the world and worked in many fields, with a focus on youth and efficient and innovative fund implementation. Yuji believes the Tohoku Earthquake revealed local issues that were not resolved in the past, and the accident of the nuclear power plant clearly showed the problem of energy and the social cost associated with it. To succeed in reconstruction, he wants to create a model of innovative and creative social actions and resources, and he dreams big about the possibilities of organic cooperation between people, resources, and information.
