Kyushu Sustainability Initiative
Tatsuro Ishibashi
President, Kyushu University
Humanity is currently facing a range of challenges, including climate change, extreme poverty, and economic inequality. In these circumstances, the 2015 United Nations Summit created the SDGs: Sustainable Development Goals. The universal goals are expected to be achieved by 2030. The United Nations has identified the ten years beginning in 2020 as the "Decade of Action" to accelerate efforts to achieve the SDGs and called for a greater emphasis on achieving a sustainable society.

2) Set greenhouse gas emissions toward a real zero target by 2050 (equivalent to "a decarbonized society").
3) Guarantee a healthy and secure society (equivalent to a "health and security society").
