~ Designing Future Society for Our Lives ~

In 2025, ‘Expo 2025’ will be held in Osaka, Kansai with the theme of ‘Designing Future Society for Our Lives’.
We are convinced that ‘Expo 2025’, a huge project for a new era that has overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, will serve as a platform where the world can work together and seek ways to achieve a sustainable future.
In this Web Forum, Dr. Alaa Murabit, UN High-Level Commissioner on Health, Employment and Economic Growth, and Dr. Oussouby Sacko, President of Kyoto Seika University and Deputy Chairman of the Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition will raise issues about the sustainability of the world in the future and discuss the role that will be played by Expo 2025 in addressing these issues.
Moreover, to help us further understand the attractiveness of Osaka, Kansai from the perspective of international business, we will invite speakers from diverse backgrounds who have visited Osaka, Kansai and are currently active in various fields.
