Sustainable Social Systems and Policy Research Program

Outline of Program

Focused on the social and economic activities at the origin of environmental problems, we analyze – from industrial and consumerist perspectives – the measures needed to create sustainable societies in Japan and overseas.
Also, by creating models, as well as testing future environmental, social and economic scenarios, we highlight those measures which should be taken by all organizations, societies, households and individuals for the realization of a sustainable society.
