Exploration for Wisdom: the world
America Phase
sponsored by the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership

In order to help catch students interest, WSN will carry out "Exploration for Wisdom: the world" as its annual adventure project.
Starting in mid-April with the U.S.A, adventures in Israel, Vietnam and the U.K. will take place after semesters start in September. Students will be able to request that WSN correspondents report about topics of interest related to their project circle discussions.

In connection with this project, "Exploration America," a one-year project sponsored by the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership will also take place. To start the project off, Greg Michel will visit with World School friends in Pennsylvania, Minnesota, as well as his hometown in Upstate New York. In addition teachers will be invited to collaborate in a summer workshop in Japan in late July.
