panel discussion
Can environmental and ecological conservation move forward through business methods?

Within the 9th Annual Conference of the Association of Transdisciplinary Studies, March 6-7, 2020 (Friday and Saturday), hosted by RIVANES, a panel discussion, "Can Environmental and Ecological Conservation Move Forward with Business Methods?" will be held.

The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

 Until now, humankind has relied on the natural environment for all of its resources to form societies. While we realized early on that these resources are not infinite, in an economy-first society, environmental destruction is progressing and biodiversity is being lost. The business world's involvement is currently limited to limited activities such as CSR from a long-term perspective, but is there any way to break out of this situation?
In this session, we will invite two young entrepreneurs, Mr. Yota Takakura of Inoka Inc. and Mr. Yuya Miyazaki of Science Groove Inc. who are challenging business based on the theme of ecosystems, and Mr. Wataru Kitamura of Tokyo City University who is engaged in ecological research focusing on birds, to explore the possibility of advancing environmental and ecosystem conservation through business methods through discussion. Through the discussion, we will explore the possibility of advancing environmental and ecological conservation through business methods.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, start-ups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
