Commitment to SDGs

  • SDGs
  • In September 2015, the United Nations reached a unanimous consensus regarding Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These SDGs are a bold, ambitious global plan that seeks to put an end to poverty, tackle the problems of inequality, and respond to climate change. The University of Tokyo has publicly declared its intent to make full use of these SDGs to achieve its closely aligned goals of invigorating collaborative activities that contribute to the future of the planet and of human society.

    RCAST is a small research organization with only roughly 200 members, but it is committed to achieving all of these SDGs.
