The Japan Foundation has conducted the "East Asia Future Leaders Programme" under the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths (JENESYS) Programme from 2007 to 2012.
It is a short-term exchange scheme which specifically targets young intellectuals and practitioners of particular activities aged up to 35 years in East Asia. Each program focuses on a specific theme and emphasizes a series of discussions on thematic issues common to the region, and interaction with Japanese experts and citizens with specific backgrounds.
Promising youths from the relevant fields with the related expertise expected to become the leaders of the next generation visit Tokyo and other localities, sharing every moment of study tour program together and nurturing a bond among the members. The program aims at developing mutual understanding and building networks among the 16 participating countries including Japan, a host country.
