Program of the 18th SCA joint session

organized by Committee of Science and Society and Young Academy of Japan, SCJ



Date and time: December 6, 2018, 16:00-17:30
Place: Council Room (Second Floor), Science Council of Japan, Tokyo, Japan
Session title: Beyond SDGs – Under the era of the Anthropocene –

Session abstract:
The “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” (Agenda 2030) states in its preamble that this agenda is for people, planet and prosperity, and, among others, aims that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives.


The 17 goals listed in the SDGs are not the ultimate goals by themselves. Rather, these goals should be seen as milestones, and the achievement of these goals should lead to the realization of the world that the 2030 agenda is primarily heading for. It should be also emphasized that the SDGs do not cover entire vision of the 2030 Agenda.


This session aims at opening wider discussion on how science and academia can contribute to the realization of the world that the 2030 Agenda is heading for and is yet not explicitly addressed in the SDGs. Through the discussion the session also aims to draw a picture after 2030; suggesting that design of post SDGs should be now initiated. To facilitate such discussion, four speakers are invited to provide lectures.


These lectures are related to “co-existence with others,” which is believed to be one of the essential elements in prosperous and fulling lives. Each lecture provides insights on possibilities of science and academia to contribute to the co-existence with others in different contexts. Following the lectures, a panel discussion is held to discuss about the contribution of science and academia for “Beyond SDGs.”
