<SCWS 2017: Parallel event> Temporary Exhibition "No choice? The earth - sold out! ~SDGs×Backward from the future~"

A sushi bar in 2030. Is your favorite fish still on the menu?

What would you do if you knew that the lifestyle you are enjoying right now is not sustainable?
If we don't change the way we live now, we may soon deplete all natural resources available on Earth denying future generations many choices we enjoy today.
With the aim to protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity, the United Nations set out 17 Goals for Sustainable Development that it strives to achieve by the year 2030.
What knowledge we need, and what choices do we have to make to achieve these goals?
Using overfishing as a concrete example of problem calling for a sustainable solution, the panel exhibit discusses our consumption behavior, present objective scientific data, and offer visitors the opportunity to share their ideas and opinions through a message board. In addition, by experiencing the hands-on exhibit "Backward from the Future", situated next to the panel, visitors can think about the science, technology and lifestyles that will make global sustainability a reality.
