As part of its activities, the Tsukuba Information Center sponsors a bilingual discussion group the fourth Wednesday of every month from 2 to 4 pm, with invited guests giving a presentation from their area of expertise or experience. The guest for October is Ms. Sumati Nageswaran from India. She is a "world bank" student working on her masters degree in economic policy management at the University of Tsukuba, graduate school of international political economy. She works for the government of India in the Ministry of Finance in New Delhi. She has a deep interest in Indian society and culture, which will be reflected in her presentation on the theme the individual and the environment in the context of a "Global Village". She will begin her presentation with a short video on Indian culture, including an "ashram."
The Coffee Hour is meant to be an informal exchange of information and opinions. English and Japanese are both used with efforts made to make sure those who can't understand one or the other are able to at least get the gist of the conversation. Likewise, you don't need to commit yourself to the entire two hours and can come and go freely. So drop by, whether for a short time or for the entire two hours, and enjoy some free refreshments along with the stimulating conversation.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
