The reason why we are interested in was a contest with a theme that matched our preference of presentations and our desire to communicate something in English.
We really appreciate to have an opportunity to give such a presentation. Through the preparation for the topic of competition, we could contemplate what we can do for the sustainable society well. Our object was brought out by our experiences of the online classes at the university under this pandemic situation. So, we are very glad that this prize means the value of our actual problem consciousness. We believe that we can change something to the better society even though under this pandemic situation.
