Impact Seminar is a new career support seminar for high school and university students to support the exploratory learning of junior and senior high school students.In this seminar, we will extend the exploration study, and in cooperation with the RIMIX program as an extension of the project that was born there, the seminar students will take the initiative to work on the project yourself, and we will carry out initiatives such as organizing contests on campus.
Impact seminars have coordination functions to match and follow up with students in rimix programs, and coach business plans.

SDGs Expression Theory
“SDGs Expression Theory” is an online course held at the Liberal Arts Seminar and JMOOC held on the three campuses of Ritsumeikan University.Based on project-based learning (PBL) and active learning, the aim is to learn and acquire the SDGs skills necessary for students to proactively launch my projects and work to solve social issues.
It is not our main focus to unraveling the SDGs themselves, but rather to present opportunities for each person to think about how to think about the SDGs as their own.
Based on the belief that individual interests, interests, and awareness of the problem will surely lead to the SDGs, each person will launch his or her own project, put the SDGs there, and propose to work first.Then, people all over the world think about the significance of changing the world by working on my project.
