 Planning and control has been emphasized as the management function in the concept of analytic strategy.However, the modern corporation is going to utilize the emergent strategy under the today's business environment that is changing discontinuously. The emergent strategy means the strategy that is crafted based on ideas emerged from the learning organization. Based on this new management theory, the education in universities is required to be changed. It is necessary to develop the talented human resources who can challenge anything voluntary based on self-judgment and self-responsibility.
 I have utilized the environmental project for education of my seminar students, and tried to cultivate talented human resources required in modern society. The theme of this environmental project is practical use of garbage, and has developed into Eco-Sweets activity, in which garbage is upcycled into sweets. It has grown to be a big event which involves about 60 sweets store in Kagoshima. I and my seminar students are tackling together and challenge this event.Although it is burdensome for university students to challenge this project, they are definitely growing through this project. I believe that this challenge is meaningful from an educational viewpoint, too.
