【Greetings from the Chairman of the organization committee of APCG2024/Youth Summit】

In 2024, we are delighted to host the 18th Asia-Pacific Conference on Giftedness (APCG2024) in Japan for the first time. This conference is the biennial international conference of the Asia-Pacific Federation on Giftedness (APFG).

The conference theme is “Educational Environments for Transforming Gifted Minds, Lives, and Communities.” During the conference, a Youth Summit for junior high school students from Japan and abroad will also be held. The theme of the Youth Summit is “Connecting the World Glocally to Ensure a Sustainable and Equitable Future.”

Gifted children are all around us. Join us in the scenic Setouchi area for a lively discussion on the education of gifted and talented children. We will share different ideas and the latest research and practice worldwide. We hope that education will evolve towards the realization of a society in which diverse people can live together with their individuality shining through.

Prof. Manabu Sumida, Ehime University
