Apart of the summit, but also in Barcelona at the same time, Mazda will also take part in the yearly Youth Program – “Leading by Example” and host a session for international students with networking and learning opportunities. The students also get the opportunity to participate in the Mazda Make Things Better Award. The participant with the most interesting proposal to promote his project using modern tools of advocacy will be awarded €10.000.
The Mazda Make Things Better Award was kicked-off at the 13th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Warsaw. For his project focusing on raising awareness on small arms violence in Africa through the use of radio programmes, the Finnish medical student Antti Junkkari was awarded as the first Mazda Make Things Better Award winner. In 2015, the Japanese student Yuka Kawamura won the award for her innovative learning tool project called “Worldwide Online Tutoring/Mentoring by Youth for Youth”.
This year Mazda again invites the participating students to submit their promotion idea at the end of the session. The winner will then be announced in spring 2016.
