MIEA Intercultural Lecture Series 「MIEA世界めぐり」


Take a world trip from home!

The Matsudo International Exchange Association (MIEA) runs an intercultural lecture series called 'MIEA Sekai Meguri', or 'MIEA Around the World'. They invite international guest speakers to first introduce their country and culture to a local audience (generally in English), and then participate in a Q&A session regarding their lecture. The series is very popular, with seats booking out fast!
