Message from Chairman


“Some things change. Others should not”


Thank you very much indeed for your generous support for and cooperation with our group’s activities. We at RBA International have exerted ourselves in 2005 in order “to leave an earth which is a better place to live for the generation 300 years after now”.


In 21st century society we are faced with serious global problems, and cannot help but feel a sense of impending crisis. In contrast to the mood at the start of the 20th century, when people nurtured a dream of building a better future through science and technology, we now feel stalled, with no way forward.


These societal circumstances make it even more imperative for each of us to live as a responsible adult. We must tackle squarely the global problems we currently face, without getting caught up in our daily rush, and without being arrogant about the knowledge the human race has accumulated.


Precisely because of the way things are today, RBA International has made an active commitment to change, with a view to how the world will look in 300 years. We believe that “changing the world begins with the individual,” and “in order to change humanity, I must first change myself.”


RBA International activities in 2005 included many grass-root activities in diversified fields, including cooperative projects with UNESCO in the areas of both education and cultural exchange. This year as well, we hope to contribute to world peace. We appreciate your cordial understanding and support for our activities.
