Yosuke Nagai

Age: 26
Country of Origin: Japan

I am Yosuke Nagai, the president of Japan Somalia Youth Organization. In 2011, I established the only NGO in Japan just focused on Somalia in order to change harsh situation in Somalia. For terror prevention and peacebuilding, I focus on Somali gangs who are potential extremist members, so eliminated by society and the world. I have a strong desire to create opportunities for all people to have a perception of Earthling. My idea is to formulate “World Earthling Week” when status of people in all places, including conflict areas, will be just only Earthling with symbol color, like rainbow for LGBT actions, instead of nationality and race. In this week, we will hold many events beyond country to think over problems on the Earth from micro to macro perspective. I firmly believe that 21st century is the time for us to become an Earthling beyond nationality and that we can remove other people’s affairs on the Earth.
