[Lecture content]
The SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals), which started in 2016, will reach the middle year in 2023. The ambitious goal of a poverty-free and sustainable society by 2030 has been forced by Corona to make a major setback, and the crisis of "global limits" such as climate change and biodiversity loss has not been awaited. .. On the other hand, the "crisis related to geopolitical transformation" of world rebalancing due to the rise of huge emerging nations, and the "crisis related to science and technology innovation" that drastically changes society, economy and culture as a whole due to the rapid introduction of new science and technology. Together, the risks the world faces are much greater than they were when the SDGs began. 2023 is the year in which Japan will chair the G7, and there will be a UN UHC High-Level Meeting. What do we need to prepare for the SDGs mid-year?
