JST runs “Japan Pavilion” through collaboration with the following organizations in the AAAS Annual Meeting.
In the “Japan Pavilion,” each organization will introduce its activities and research outcomes by posters and movies. We will offer information of science and technology of Japan on various view points through communication with researchers, government officers, journalists, students from all over the world, citizens of Washington D.C., and so on.
JST will introduce the program of “Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS)” which supports joint researches between researchers in Japan and developing countries, the activities of Center for Low Carbon Society Strategy(LCS) which develops a scenario for realizing low carbon society, and the activities for promoting science communication.
Not only exhibition but also sessions are going to be organized: “Reaching Out to People in East Asia on Green Issues: Policies and Practices” (on 19th, 10:00am~11:30am, local time) and “Design Thinking To Mobilize Science, Technology, and Innovation for Social Challenges” (on 20th, 8:30am~11:30am, local time).
In the session, ”Reaching Out to People in East Asia on Green Issues: Policies and Practices” which is co-organized with Korea Foundation for the Advancement and Creativity (KOFAC) and China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), we introduce the activities of Japan, China and Korea to encourage social awareness for ‘Green Issues’ and discuss science communication and global collaboration for sustainable society.
In the session “Design Thinking To Mobilize Science, Technology, and Innovation for Social Challenges”, we have nominated seven speakers from Belgium, Germany, Japan, UK, USA.
The theme focuses on the increasing complexity of problems around the globe and the challenges in developing and adopting coordinated, innovative problem-solving that will be accepted by dissimilar governments and societies. This proposal offers a global view of the co-evolutive approach and innovative design thinking to address social challenges.
