Dr. Nanko (Professor, Head of office for SDGs Promotion, NUT), served as a facilitator in question-and-answer sessions following the lectures. There were many questions from participants and active exchanges of opinions were carried out in a comfortable mood with laughter from time to time.
On the day, there were a large number of corporate officials and researchers in and outside the city, and students in Nagaoka City. The event ended a great success with approximately 60 participants which were more than the capacity.
Through lectures and events, NUT will continue to provide opportunities for companies and local communities to learn about SDGs, while promoting proactive efforts to realize a sustainable global environment.
