A public talk session was held by Natsuki and eight of the student photographers on November 23 at the same venue.
The students told the audience about their experiences in the areas devastated by the earthquake and eloquently expressed, in their own words, their belief that learning from the Tohoku earthquake and keeping the tragedy in mind will play a key part in saving lives from future disasters. They also voiced their renewed determination to protect the lives of their families and friends by using the lessons learned in Tohoku, so that the people who lost their lives there did not die in vain. The audience, which came from all walks of life, was very impressed by the students and deeply interested in the photographs they took.
