This forty-six strong team including ten international and eight domestic students, has been working on the planning, writing, publicity efforts, and much more.An attempt to try something new this time will introduce a link to the web in one of the articles. On Saturday, July 31, the day of the APU PRESS edition and correlated to the article on the special lecture by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Dr. Muhammad Yunus, APM Professor YOKOYAMA Kenji will be giving a live broadcast special lecture, "Social Business from APU", via USTREAM starting at 12:00.
In addition to USTREAM, you can also enjoy viewing the lecture streaming live at "Platform03" - a local regional exchange salon run by APU in Beppu City as part of its regional development initiatives. You can also join in via Twitter. We hope you will take this opportunity to enjoy an APU lecture.
