At the 2025 Osaka-Kansai Expo, which will be held on the artificial island of Yumeshima in Konohana-ku, Osaka, the university consortium Osaka, consisting of 40 universities in Osaka Prefecture, has signed an agreement with the Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition to promote collaboration. .While playing a role in boosting the momentum of the Expo, we aim to improve the quality of education and research using the Expo.

 According to the Consortium of Universities Osaka, the agreement calls for students from universities that are members of Consortium Osaka to actively participate in the Osaka/Kansai Expo as volunteers and part-time workers, while the official character of the expo, Myakumyaku, appears at school festivals and other occasions. to build momentum for the Expo.

 Universities Consortium Osaka plans to ask member universities to have students' volunteer participation recognized as credits, and will soon enter into discussions with the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and member universities.

 The 1970 Osaka Expo, held at Senrikyuryo in Suita City, Osaka Prefecture, attracted a great deal of attention for its state-of-the-art technology at the time, such as moon rocks brought back from the moon by the United States during the Apollo program and artificial satellites from the former Soviet Union. It ended successfully.However, the 2025 Osaka-Kansai World Expo is less than two years away from being held, but there is still a lack of nationwide excitement, and there are still problems such as a significant delay in the construction of pavilions.

 By collaborating with local universities, the Association for the 2025 Japan World Exposition hopes to build momentum among the younger generation and create opportunities for success.
