Day 4: Workshop on presentations about themes from Day 2 and Day 3

We (Chiba University staff) dedicated the fourth day of our program to the completion of tasks given to students in Days 2 and 3, and to the implementation of these tasks into a final presentation. More specifically, in the morning session, we asked students to complete their map of the image of the city of Thessaloniki (a task given on Wednesday by Prof. Pozoukidou) and to then build a presentation in which they will use Chiba U. students’ comments to map out and explain how the city of Thessaloniki may be seen by tourists, with the ultimate objective of trying to show how a city’s landscape is constructed by the people who live in it and by those who just visit it. In the afternoon session, students were asked to analyze their questionnaire data by focussing on the issues that local villagers may have raised in regards to the women’s co-operatives, and to build a prototype for promoting agritourism by using the questionnaire data and by incorporating plans/policies that have been already incorporated in Chiba prefecture.
