SDGs Japan is a network for achieving SDGs centered on civil society organizations that work to achieve SDGs. We conduct study sessions on SDGs, analysis of the current situation regarding policy proposals, and advice from civil society organizations for companies and organizations to consider business formation and introduction using SDGs. .

So far, I have been a lecturer, facilitator, and workshop at special classes at universities and high schools, symposiums and events hosted by companies, and workshops and events hosted by NPOs/NGOs.


We support a wide range of topics, including development, the environment, gender, people with disabilities, children, education, and regional sustainability, such as promoting understanding of the SDGs in general and specific workshops aimed at integrated solutions to individual goals.
