Future Earth actively involved in the G7 Hiroshima Summit 2023 related events

Related to the G7 summit and Ministerial meetings, there were several activities in Japan. Here, we introduce two events in which Future Earth was actively involved.  

“Youth Co-create” project co-organized by SWiTCH and Sapporo City

As Sapporo City was the venue of the G7 Ministers’ Meeting on Climate, Energy and Environment, SWiTCH, a youth platform bridging the intergenerational sustainability gap in Japan, worked with three experts (Taro Yamauchi, Seita Emori from the National Committee and Fumiko Kasuga, Japan Hub Director)  to host  lectures on the concept of planetary boundary. Japanese youth based on the lectures created a list of 10 actions for sustainability they wish to achieve at a city-level. The project is progressing into the action phase and with Sapporo City to create a list of sustainable souvenirs to support the transition of the travel industry. More information in Japanese can be found here.
