Time flows from the present day to the future. Today's self creates tomorrow's self, and the day after tomorrow and beyond will repeat itself.
If you look at life as a system, you realise that today's outputs become tomorrow's inputs, and new outputs are created to make up the whole, and that every single detailed IN/OUT is very important. We hope that this year's Keio SDM exhibition will make you realise that it is important to create a small flow of your own in order to build a better future for yourself and the world. In this exhibition, two student teams, a team of alumni and an exhibition of sponsors present the various perspectives of setting up and creating small flows, such as feeling good about yourself, facing food properly, training for the future, and raising awareness in the right direction on a global scale. It shows an attitude and a flow towards the future. We hope that experiencing this will help you to arrange a good flow.
