- Professor Yasunori Isagai
Introduction to the discussion
Nowadays, neighboring relationships are on the decline and the connection between people in a region is fading, which leads to local deactivation.
Regional revitalization can be realized through creating connections between people and relationships between organizations in the region, assuming the active participation of local people.
In other words, community development is the key to regional revitalization.
Finding the problem
Then, what is necessary for future community development in a rapidly changing society?
What is considered important is to make use of the idea of “Platform” that was conceived by Professor Yoshinori Isagai of the Faculty of Policy Management that is defined as a mechanism or tool that serves as the basis for communication that facilitates collaboration when various participants collaborate.
I believe that the active participation of people is essential to community development and regional revitalization.
Also, I believe that human resource development in the enterprises and regional revitalization have much in common, and therefore research with regional revitalization as a research theme has wide applications.
Therefore, I would like to deepen my research on more effective “Platform” design for next-generation community development in an aging society that will be further advanced in the future.
Examining the conclusion
By studying with Professor Yasunori Isagai, who has high-quality research achievements in platform design, and by touching research in a wide range of fields, I am sure that I could obtain various perspectives regarding my research and it would open up new horizons for me.
Therefore, I believe that Keio University’s Faculty of Policy Management is the most suitable place for pursuing my research and social contributions, and I am aspiring to enter your school and study in your laboratory.
