How do you promote a new foreign initiative in a local setting? This was the core question the YUNGA Japan team posed to several groups of University interns during August. In this 3-hour workshop, the university students began by learning through storytelling the essence of SDGs and how everyone has something to contribute.

The YUNGA Japan team proceeded to explain the importance of SDG education for youth and the challenges of bringing an initiative like this to Japan. The participants then roleplayed as YUNGA Japan members and brainstormed ideas to spread the initiative across the country.

The ideas were plentiful and varied: from collaborating with youtubers to using image mapping to use a whole bridge as an advertisement piece.
