Efforts toward international peace and unofficial diplomacy
Tokai University Educational System (TES) aspires to lasting peace and engages in academic, cultural, and sports exchanges designed to foster international peace and mutual understanding among nations, regardless of political differences.
With scarce oil and other energy resources, Japan sought to capture by force the resources of other countries in the past, resulting in war. To prevent such tragedies and live together peacefully, TES considers that international exchanges, at both civilian and government levels, are essential. Thus, TES has been pursuing its unique brand of unofficial diplomacy through exchanges in academic, art, and sporting events. TES also organizes conferences on various challenges to humankind such as food shortages, international peace, and information technology, and welcomes students from Asian countries to Japan. Furthermore, TES works hard to develop international friendship and goodwill, beyond the boundaries of countries and politics, through unofficial diplomatic channels by, for example, hosting the Asian and Pacific University Presidents' Conference to concentrate the top minds of the world's universities on how to ensure international peace.
