In Early Modern Japan, classrooms were made up of tatami mats and wooden floors instead of standing desks and podiums. Early modern Japanese classrooms had a unique space and structure. As a result, Early Modern Japan adopted an education system unlike any other in the world, in which people could study regardless of their status. It was in order to pass on these heritage sites to future generations and share their historical significance with the world, the council is promoting efforts toward the registration of the sites as World Heritage Sites. In this symposium, domestic and foreign experts familiar with the history of education and world heritage studies will gather together to discuss the universal outstanding value of heritage sites from an international perspective. 🔶Timetable Registration 12:30-13:00 13:00 Welcome speech Yasushi Takahashi(Mayor of the Mito City, President of “World Heritage Inscription Council for the Early Modern Japanese Educational Sites.”) 13:15 Keynote speech 1 ” Educational Heritage of Early Modern Japan From International Perspectives ” Margaret Mehl（Professor ,University of Copenhagen) 14:00 Keynote speech 2 “Education Heritage as World Heritage : The Case of Early Modern Japan” Dinu Bumbaru(Policy Director,Heritage Montreal Foundation) Break 14:40-15:00 15:00 Panel Discussion Coordinator Akihiko Hashimoto (Senior Fellow, Japan Women’s University) Panelist Margaret Mehl Dinu Bumbaru Tsuguto Ezura (Professor, Okayama University of Science) Manabu Oishi (Professor Emeritus, Tokyo Gakugei University) Yasuyoshi Okada (Professor Emeritus, Kokushikan University) 16:00 Closing Speech
