A brief description of the event(s):
Sustainability Weeks (SW) is a campaign hosted by Hokkaido University with the aim of promoting research and education to help create a sustainable society.
More than 6,000 researchers, educators, students, and citizens from home and abroad share and discuss the latest scientific knowledge in the form of symposium, workshop and various exhibitions to identify the next steps toward a better future during the two weeks of SW.
The first such session was organized in 2007, and it has since been held every year with the involvement of the entire university.
The events held during SW cover various issues and almost all the academic disciplines relevant to the discussion of a sustainable society.
