Organizer: RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS)
Since its establishment in 2013, CSRS has been promoting "problem-solving" research based on the principle of "manufacturing" with a low environmental impact, with the aim of realizing a sustainable society through the integration of different fields of plant science, chemical biology, and catalytic chemistry. The purpose of this symposium is to establish a new field of "sustainable resource science" for the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to widely disseminate this field to society, and to allow us to discuss society’s expectation of this new field and what our centers and researchers can and should do to make this all possible. Dr. Akira Yoshino (recipient of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2019) and Professor Johan Rockström (Director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research) will give talks as keynote speakers.
