The Kyoto Academia Seminar is aimed for graduates living in the Tokyo metropolitan area and persons affiliated to the industrial world and universities to think collectively about what we must do today in order to build sustainable societies. (Host: Kyoto University of Foreign Studies’ Alumni Association in Tokyo / Co-host: Kyoto University of Foreign Studies)
The seminar is comprised of three series, of which the first round featured KUFS’s community engagement program designed to foster creative and imaginative abilities of the future generation.
This second round, participants will think about “How today looks like 10 years from now and our tasks at hand (current conditions and issues)” from the perspectives of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Specifically, three lecturers of different professions and industries will 1) take multiple perspectives to examine current conditions and problems surrounding energy challenges that directly affects the Earth‘s environment, 2) explain the present situations and issues facing sustainable finance and investments from a corporate perspective, and 3) think about how factors that are closely involved with the evolution of human civilization such as trade in goods and services and people travelling across borders would change in the near future, and what SDGs must be brought to the table to handle those changes. These lectures would involve discussions with participants.
First-time attendees are very welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.
