Participated in the Super Global High School report meeting
One of our members took part in the 2nd result presentations of SGH students, which was held at
Tokyo campus of Tsukuba University.
She interacted with other super global high school students and foreign high school students and shared her results of her research with them. Her theme was about disposable wooden chopstick which spreads happiness. This was based on the Sustainable Development Goals as a topic in the symposium. She said that we can't talk about happiness without thinking of the environment because problems of the global environment is getting worse gradually.
Through her presentation, she said she was able to think about happiness from a different point of view.

Visited the National Palace Museum in Taiwan
In one group member's stay in Taiwan, she visited the National Palace Museum there, and found what is called a "翠玉白菜(Suigyoku Hakusai)" in Taiwanese. It is a work of art, forming a shape of a Chinese cabbage. It used to be given as a present from parents for their daughter, hoping for their daughter's happiness about several hundred years ago. The Chinese cabbage implies "long life" because their pronunciations are alike in Chinese. And there are some grasshoppers on its leaves which are the symbol of fertility. Parents hoped for their daughter's long life and to have a lot of children.
She realized that the mind which parents hope for their daughter's "happiness" hasn't changed over time in any country, and she was moved to realize this little happiness and it made me feel happy.
How about trying to pay attention to not only appearances of a work but also backgrounds of it, and appreciate it? You may find "a little happiness"!

Participated in a program held in Taiwan
Two of our members joined in a program in Taiwan. They discussed problems of the global environment with students at the Taipei Municipal Taipei First Girl's High School.
They realized that what environmental issues are the most serious differs from country to country.
Although Taiwan is located close to Japan, there were various different points. They felt they were able to develop their ability to think from different points of view and broaden their horizons. These also helped them in thinking about happiness.
Thank you, Taipei Municipal Taipei First Girl's High School Students!!
