The global environment crisis, coupled with pressing social and economic challenges, is putting increasing pressure on Japan to make the transition to more sustainable socio-economic systems to build a more prosperous and inclusive future.
The Global Future Council on Japan will bring together a multistakeholder expert group to formulate a new vision and path for Japan’s sustainable transition, focusing primarily on the food system and the circular economy, two of the most critical areas for a country that relies heavily on global food and natural resources. Japan’s food systems and circular economy have a high level of global interdependence, and its efforts could bring a huge impact internationally. The council will design policy recommendations and leverage webinars, report publications and social media campaigns to engage broad stakeholders in a discussion on the food system transition and circular economy adaptation.
