Humanity has always opened up new worlds by acquiring technology and energy, and overcoming challenges to reach new heights. Today, we are confronted with global issues such as climate change, resource problems, and the novel coronavirus.
To address these issues, I am taking two approaches.
The first is “creating the future”, a practical process and network of thinking, dialogue, action, and creation of a desirable future society with diverse people.
The second is “harmony of individuals”. Each individual must think about what they want to do, make choices, and discover their own answers. Thus, the way of life of each individual will become sustainable. I am pursuing a new philosophy to achieve this.
In both cases, my strength lies in getting people to mentally adopt issues as their own, drawing on my experience of working with local governments, NPOs, and NGOs in a variety of settings.
I have been interested in the environment and nature since I was a child, and the world view of “Nausicaa” has been one of the bases of my activities. I will continue my research and activities with “think globally, act locally” as my motto.
