Daisuke KanekoAfter graduating from Kanagawa Prefectural Shonan High School, Daisuke was accepted at Waseda University School of Education, Department of Educational Psychology. Since junior high school, Daisuke has been fascinated about “What human affluence is?” and started studying and practicing the history and philosophy of it. During his research in the last year of college, he realized how necessary it is to improve the working environment for adults in order to raise children with a rich heart. In 2014, he joined Pasona Co., Ltd., a human resources company, as a new graduate. After that, he worked there as a sales and career advisor for 4 years in Tokyo. In November 2018, he started questioning the urban nature of mass production and mass consumption and wanted to increase the number of people that “think” through actual feelings and practices. As a result, he established Tane no Chikara Co., Ltd. to carry out a business that served to that purpose. There, he works as an instructor for hands-on SDGs training for a wide range of people from elementary school students to working adults.

After graduating with a master's degree in 2015, she joined Pasona Group Inc. and helped launch an international performing arts festival called Awaji Art Circus (AAC). Over the past seven years, the number of applicants has grown from 50 to 500, and AAC has become a world-renowned festival. She also established the Awaji Art Circus Executive Committee with Awaji City, Sumoto City, Minami-Awaji City, Awaji Prefectural Government, and the Awaji Island Kuniumi Association as members. This year, she took on a new challenge and gathered selected artists from all over Japan to Awaji Island to perform a fascinating story of the three noble gods, Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, and Susanoo from the "Kojiki" (Records of Ancient Matters), and the show was very popular with the residents and tourists.

Santiago MartinezSantiago is an engineer and educator who pushes people to embrace their curiosity and take action. Growing up in his native Colombia, he constantly wondered how to solve the social issues that surrounded him which, combined with his mathematical abilities, led him to study mechanical engineering. During his studies, he got awarded two fellowships to research nanotechnology and took advanced classes on wind turbine design and design of energy- efficient buildings. Looking for a challenge outside his comfort zone, he worked as a teacher in a public school in Micronesia where he learned to see education as a powerful tool for social change. Currently, Santiago combines his technical knowledge and his passion for education to help youth in Japan and the world to create impactful projects with their local communities.
Shinichi FukuyamaShinichi Fukuyama (34) Born in Osaka Prefecture, Shinnichi moved to Awaji Island two and a half years ago with his family. After graduating from university, he worked as a teacher at a public elementary school. After that, he worked in sales and human resources at a private company, taught at a cram school, and participated in the launch of a new private school. After the birth of his third child, he considered moving to the Kansai area. He moved to Awaji Island, which he had no connection with, because he thought it would be better to raise his children in a place with rich natural environment where they could play a lot. In Awaji Island, he worked as a member of the Community Development Cooperation Team, providing immigration counseling and managing the vacant house bank. In the process, Fukuyama has experienced the goodness of Awaji Island and traditional Japanese culture.
