COVID-19 has drastically changed our societies.
The COVID-19 pandemic might have been caused by imbalances in the relationship between nature and humans, such as climate change and deforestation.
When considering the COVID-19 era and beyond, we must think about how we will be in harmony with nature.
This symposium endeavours to seek ways to consider the COVID-19 era, through messages from distinguished guest speakers who have worked for a long time toward resolving global environmental issues.
[ International Cosmos Prize ]
The International Cosmos Prize was established at the 1990 International Flower and Greenery Expo (EXPO’90) to further inherit and develop the idea of the “Harmonious Coexistence between Nature and Humankind”. The Prize is awarded to outstanding activities (research and otherwise) in Japan and overseas that are in line with this idea.
