World Agenda Studio―debating global issues, proposing solutions from Japan

The Genron NPO launched a new challenge of engaging global agenda to contribute to solution of global issues at hand. We expand the discussion framework in Japan and elaborate with other leading global think-tanks in pursuit of solving the imminent problems facing countries around the world. For this purpose, we newly launched the "World Agenda Studio" page to our website, where our activities are reported as a voice of Japan.

The Tokyo Conference has been launched as a multilateral platform for dialogue on diverse global issues, by engaging the world's leading thinktanks, and aims to submit our proposal to the Group of Seven (G-7) leaders.

Our immediate concern is that the international order since the end of World War II, rooted in the principles of "individual freedom" and "democracy," could be undermined. At this critical juncture, the representatives of the 10 dvanced democracies, which shared the fundamental values, gathered in Tokyo to conduct dialogue on global issues.
The outcome of their discussions has been submitted as our proposal to the government of Japan and the G7.
