The "1-day Policy Making Simulation Workshop" will be offered by METI and ToTAL again this year, as a part of ToTAL's course "Recognition of Social Issues A/C".

It will be an informative opportunity for students to discuss on-going issues with active bureaucrats of METI by experiencing a policy making simulation from a macro perspective of national policy making, and gain some of the important skills of leadership, such as viewing subjects from a broad and diverse perspective.

We welcome applications from not only the students who apply ToTAL course but also any students who do not apply ToTAL course (both of graduates and undergraduates) from Tokyo Tech and other universities, who are interested in making policies and roles of METI.
