ACHIEVEMENTS

Opening Statement of the 1975 Global Festival

There is only one path for Japan to follow if it is to move into the future amidst peace, the path of establishing strong bonds of friendship with all other countries.
Following the precepts of our Founding Philosophy we now wish to broaden the scope of our activities even further and form friendship associations with every country in the world as well as engaging in cultural and student exchange programs.
We would also like to help people, both inside and outside of Japan, who are suffering from poverty, war or natural disasters. We would like to do many things for the welfare of the world's peoples.

All Japan Youth English Oratorical Contest for the Mayor of Honolulu Trophy

The All Japan Youth English Oratorical Contest for the Mayor of Honolulu Trophy is open to all Japanese high school and college/university students. We firmly believe that today's youth will play important roles in the future global society. The main idea of the contest is to make
participants aware of various problems faced by Japan and other nations, think about them, and find ways to solve them. At the same time, the students' English ability is enhanced by participating in the contest. This oratorical contest is now the largest in scale and highest in quality in the entire country. The contest is supported by more than 20 educational and other institutions both in Japan and abroad. The themes of the past thirty-six contests are as follows.

All Japan ECC English Oratorical and Recitation Contest for the Mayor of Honolulu Trophy

More than 100,000 ECC students participate in the annual All Japan ECC English Oratorical and Recitation Contest for the Mayor of Honolulu Trophy every year. The aim of the contest is to enhance students' English ability. The contest surely is a great motivation and encouragement to our students.

ECC Save-the-Earth Campaign

War, poverty, and disease are the three greatest human tragedies. In this day of advanced technology, it would seem quite possible to create a paradise on this earth, free from these tragedies, if everyone in the world were to put aside just one percent of his or her annual income. In order to prevent wars and bring about world peace, it is essential to try to solve the two tragedies of poverty and illness simultaneously.
We, as private citizens, must try to make continuous efforts in order to attain happiness for the human race. We will continue our support activities as long as we are financially able to do so. This is the spirit of the ECC Save-the-Earth Campaign. Since the beginning of the campaign, we have donated 548,947,036 to various worthy causes.
