In the keynote lectures, two people working on serious problems in the world talk about their challenges.
Dr. Dwikorita Karnawati, former president of Gadjah Mada University (Indonesia), is addressing the problem of natural disasters that are becoming increasingly serious with local residents.
In cooperation with students and faculty members, she actively created the collaboration of local communities and created new disaster countermeasures through the establishment of an early warning system of groundbreaking landslides.
She is going to talk about what mission the scientist should play in society.
Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2006, is famous for contributing to improving the quality of life by creating Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, financing project funds for a wide range of poor people.
Currently he insists that "technology", "social business", "youth", "good government" is important as it is possible to eradicate poverty from the earth.
He will be taking at science agora in order to call for the importance of participation of academia in social business.
Let's think together beyond the discipline field, position, country, culture, generation barrier how each of us will incorporate science and technology to overcome the difficulties of reality and to richly live.
