The Sylff Association was launched in April 2017 to commemorate Sylff’s 30th anniversary and to pool the wisdom accumulated over the past three decades in the Sylff community. It seeks to facilitate positive change in society by bringing closer together all Sylff stakeholders: fellows, the steering committee members of 69 Sylff institutions, and the staff of the Nippon Foundation and Tokyo Foundation for Policy Research .
Creating a strong, effective network at the global level, though, requires vigorous local bases. Local Association Networking Support (LANS) was thus created as a new support program to promote networking at the local level.
Activities undertaken by local Sylff associations can nurture the leadership qualities needed to achieve common goals for the betterment of society and stimulate new ideas. Consider making use of the new support program to broaden perspectives by connecting with even distant Sylff fellows.
