    The UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS), the Global Environment Outreach Centre (GEOC), and the Embassy of Sweden will jointly hold an International Symposium: Public Engagement for the Global Goals with a Special Focus on Sustainable Oceans with Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. This event is supported by the United Nations Information Centre, Tokyo.

    Since the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was adopted in September 2015, the global community has been exploring ways to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under this ambitious agenda. This symposium will examine how we should understand the SDGs; how to inspire young people to achieve the goals; and how government, science, and business can collaborate together. The latter half of the symposium will focus on the current conditions of oceans, what kinds of initiatives have been taken and will be possible, and how Japan can contribute to achieving the related SDGs.

    Simultaneous interpretation will be available in Japanese and English.
