Message from KISS 22 Organising Committee Leader

Dear participants,

“And then there were none”.
It is often said that earth, seen from space, has no borders. Yet every day we experience some kind of obstacle that prevents our mutual understanding, whether it be by the way we look or by the ideals we have, and sometimes, we have trouble identifying and understanding them.
Have you ever felt such “Borders”? Come and share with us at KISS ’22.

- KISS22 Organising Committee Leader ITO Sunao
