Japanese sustainability course proves popular

March 2007

More than 100 students have enrolled on a lecture programme started by the non-governmental organization Japan for Sustainability.

The programme, which will be run for four years by Japan for Sustainability with support from the Daiwa Securities Group, is aimed at raising awareness so that younger people can take action that will promote sustainability in society.

The lectures in the programme, known as the Daiwa-JS Youth Sustainability College, cover the topic in a comprehensive and integrated way and relate it to nature, economy, society and personal well-being.

Specialists, including university professors, corporate executives, businesspeople, government officials and members of non-profit organizations and NGOs, will lecture on capacity, resources and sustainability, inter-generational and inter-regional equity, diversity and sustainability, and commitment, networking and sustainability.

Details of the lectures will be sent to 187 other countries so that efforts in Japan to promote sustainability can be publicized elsewhere.

The programme is being financed by Daiwa Securities and Daiwa Asset Management and the amount is determined by the net assets of an investment trust named the Daiwa Eco Fund.
