<Convention theme
Circle of Knowledge for a Sustainable Society

What approaches can be taken to realize such a society in which the natural environment is properly preserved and the needs that arise in our lives today are met while also maintaining a state in which our future descendants can also utilize the resources available to them? The global-scale issues facing humanity, including resource, environmental, and food issues related to this are complex, and in order to untangle them, we need the knowledge of people in various positions and people who are passionate about making them a reality.
The "Circle of Knowledge" in the theme of this forum is the fusion of knowledge that is created when people with passion join hands. This forum aims to create this circle from the knowledge of a diverse range of people, including academia, large corporations, venture companies, local factories, junior high and high school students, etc., and to generate a number of small challenges from this forum that can be initiated to realize a sustainable society.

Aiming to create a society where resources are recycled, he not only develops recycling technologies, but also works with manufacturers, retailers, and other companies in various industries to unify the recycling process.
