SW is an annual campaign hosted by Hokkaido University since 2007 with the aim of promoting research and education to help create a sustainable society. The events have attracted several thousands of researchers, educators, students and citizens from Japan and beyond over the years.

This year’s program includes two unique lectures related to risk communication on food and agriculture, and agro-ecosystems in Japan and the US. A donation campaign for used books will also take place aiming to reduce environmental impact and provide educational support for students.

Two satellite events will follow SW in November and early December: an international symposium to discuss the role of the university’s Center for Environmental and Health Sciences (CEHS), and a social business competition related to the Hult Prize.

Details of each program are available here.
