On 15 January 2016, the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) and Keio University will organise a symposium on “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: Transforming Japan and the World” at UNU Headquarters in Tokyo.
Over the past three years, the “Project on Sustainability Transformation beyond 2015” (S-11 project of the Environment Research and Technology Development Fund) has conducted comprehensive research on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and on how they should be implemented and reviewed, with various actors that need to be involved in the process — including government agencies, international organisations, the private sector and NGOs. This symposium will highlight and sum up the research outcomes of the project, and also discuss the transformation needed to realize the SDGs as well as to achieve a sustainable society.
This event will be held in English and Japanese with simultaneous interpretation provided.
This event is free and open to the public, but advanced registration is required. Please register from the online registration page. [Registration is now closed.]
For more information, please see the event announcement on the UNU-IAS website.
This event will be held as part of the S-11 Environment Research and Technology Development Fund on POST2015.
