Can someone post the scheduled start time for this session on Thursday, July 18?Round Table – Sport and the Reconstruction
The power of sport is its power to boost the recovery effort in Tohoku, its power for human life, and its power for peace. Sport gave courage and hope to the people who suffered from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake. It contributed greatly to their happiness and to their recovery.
Participants in the symposium will discuss and share their ideas on what sport can do for people’s happiness, for the reconstruction in Tohoku, and for world peace. Mr. Haruhisa Handa will moderate the symposium with Evander Holyfield and Michelle Kwan.
