The theme for this year's event is Catalyst. The Japanese word for Catalyst is 触媒[SHOKUBAI]. Catalysts are normally used in chemical reactions to speed up reactions. The word for 'talk' or telling stories in Japanese is 語る[KATARU], which sounds similar to the English word catalyst. As a play on these two words, we chose this year's theme to invite speakers to talk about their personal experiences or give messages of hope to overcome these unprecedented times. How can we be catalysts for change through using our voices?
