Waseda/TMDU Discussion Café 9

~Stress – A social problem?~

What is Discussion Café?

In July 2013, TMDU and Waseda University signed an agreement with the primary goal of cooperating to cultivate future global leaders. This will be the seventh gathering of “Discussion Café” under this cooperation.

DCafé provides a rich environment for discussion in English of current controversial topics with students from various backgrounds. This is a fantastic opportunity to network with students in various fields of study from Japan and other countries and practice expressing your opinions in English!

Discussion Topic

“Karoshi” finally got the attention it deserved in the 1980s, after the OPEC oil crisis put fire to the postwar restructuring of industry and employments in Japan. Since then, the number of deaths from overwork has continued to rise last year hitting 1,456 cases, the highest it’s ever been. Everyone knows how poisonous stress is. For example, stress increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Suicide is the number one cause of death for those aged 20-30, and remains in the top 5 causes for those up to the age of 60.Communicable diseases have been blind to how deadly non-communicable diseases can be. Although intertwined social, environmental and biological factors create stress. There must be ways to solve or eliminate it from our life. We would like to dedicate this session to revealing the causes of modern days stress, and discussing the ways we can cope.
