The Science Council of Japan, the Japan Hub of Disaster Resilience Partners (JHoP) and the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED) invite you to the “International Conference on Science and Technology for Sustainability 2023 – Transforming Society to Become Resilient and Sustainable beyond Catastrophic Disasters”.
Considering natural disasters from and the past, and those in the years ahead, it is evident that societies across the world need to enhance their capacity to rebuild from calamities and transform themselves into societies which are better able to recover. On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Great Kanto Earthquake, the present event will reflect on Japan’s experiences and its accumulated knowledge over the past century, alongside the lessons learned by the experiences of other countries and regions affected by massive earthquakes, violent tsunamis, and giant cyclones. The goal of the event is to share these valuable insights with the international community and to foster international cooperation.
The Conference will be publicly broadcast. Explore more details on the event and the agenda.
