サステイナビリティ学最前線

Frontier of Sustainability Science サステイナビリティ学最前線(2)
This course is designed to learn a great variety of researches conducted at the frontier of “Sustainability Science”, through the latest research outcomes of Sustainability Science Consortium (SSC) and Integrated Research System for Sustainability Science (IR3S). SSC and IR3S were established to develop sustainability research, education, and public outreach programs and to strengthen coordination between national and local government, corporations, NPOs and other organizations while developing practical measures for technological innovation and social transformation (http://ssc-g.net/*****). By understanding a variety of academic fields related to sustainability and interactions among them, students will come to take part in the process of integrating multiple academic disciplines to implement sustainability science approach.

Schedule and specific topic of 2020 will be announced later. The following is the one of 2019 for your reference. ------- June 15 (Saturday) Lecture 1: Introduction (Michinori Uwasu, Osaka U) This lecture first explains the course objectives, duties, and scope. I then briefly cover the concepts, definitions and approaches of sustainability science and SDGs while discussing current states and challenges of global sustainability. Highlights in our talk include the research challenges the SDGs initiatives face, which aims to equip you with ideas/views useful for going through the series of lecture. Lecture 2: Future Design (Keishiro Hara, Osaka U) The fundamental challenge of sustainability issues lies in intergenerational conflicts. As unborn generations have neither a say nor way of negotiating with the current generation, it is no wonder that decisions made now under current social systems are based primarily on the interests of current generation, creating problems, such as climate change and resources depletion. This lecture will introduce the new research field “Future Design” that aims to deal with the fundamental challenge above, addressing how to design society and to make decisions taking into account the preference of future generations. Along with theoretical background and motivation, examples of participatory practices at local municipalities will be introduced, followed by discussion on how we could facilitate policymaking while taking into account the interest of future generations. Lecture 3: Progress of environmental protection policy toward the sustainable society (Teruyoshi Hayamizu, Ibaraki U) Japan experienced serious environmental pollution and then faced global issues. In order to conquer them, environmental protection policy has been developed and enhanced. This lecture first explains the history of local and global environmental problems and how they have been tackled. Then the lecture focusses on the current principles and framework of environmental protection policy together with their background and application, and finally discusses the remaining and emerging challenges to move towards the sustainable society with SDGs. Lecture 4: Sustainable resource and energy consumption by the advanced technology (Satoshi Konishi, Kyoto U) Innovative energy technology and its possible application is lectured and evaluated, with nuclear fusion as a reference. Energy systems can be analyzed from its supply chain under the constraints of resource, transportation, response to the demands, as well as waste management and environmental impacts. Energy technology is inevitable for the modern society and its economic activities, and at the same time has various risks and external costs through environmental and social pathways. This lecture will provide a new methodology to consider the energy technology from the aspects of sustainable development. June 16 (Sunday) Lecture 5: Resilient adaptation to climate change in the Asia‐Pacific region (Makoto Tamura, Ibaraki U) This lecture discusses desirable adaptation to climate change. First, the lecture introduces some research progress on impact assessment of climate change in Japan and case studies of the Asia‐Pacific region. Second, it shows some activities of adaptation in the coastal area and discusses resilient adaptation collaborating with stakeholders. →Continue to "Others"
授業の方法
This course consists of lectures by leading runners in SSC (former IR3S) partner universities and general discussion part. Lectures will be offered from each university through TV conference systems and this course is the required course of “Joint Educational Program of SSC (IR3S)”. This course will be offered in English. IR3S,SSCメンバー大学においてサステイナビリティ学の研究を牽引するトップランナーの研究者による講義を、遠隔講義システムで5大学を結んで実施する。SSC(旧IR3S)共同教育プログラム修了認定証取得のための必修科目とする。講義は英語でおこなう。

Nothing special
その他
Lecture 6: Resilient Cities and its linkage with the SDGs (Riyanti Djalante, UNU) Sustainable cities build on the extraordinary potential of urban areas to enable global change due to concentration of economic activity, innovation and job creation; the potential for social transformation, high levels of concentration of culture, people, infrastructure and buildings and the ability to redefine the relationship between rural and urban, enabling prosperity for both. The world aims “to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” by 2030, leaving no person and no place behind. Lecture 7: REDD plus and SDG: Experience in Indonesia (Indrawan, University of Indonesia, Visiting professor of KU) This lecture aims to introduce the concept and practices of SDGs and REDD+. wAmong the 17 challenges were climate action, life on land, no poverty, and affordable and clean energy. These (and further responses of immediate relevance to the SDGs) can be addressed by enhanced forest management, especially in tropical developing countries. REDD+ mechanism can provide such services. Established by UN Forum in 2005, REDD+ aims to develop incentives for carbon sequestration. Soon, it was established that REDD+ may provide opportunities not only for fiscal incentives but also governance reform. However, there are challenges such as the unattended drivers (accelerating energy consumption, and continued dependence of fossil fuel), emphasis on technical in spite of equally important governance aspects, and as a true technical challenge the “forest” definition itself. Examples relevant to REDD+ from the field, from Indonesia, is presented. Through these practical examples, “nexus” approach (simultaneous examination of interactions among multiple sectors) is illustrated. Lecture 8: Tourism and disasters (David Nguyen, U Tokyo) Tourism is a rapidly growing industry, with visitor numbers exponentially increasing every decade. Japan is experiencing a huge surge in tourism numbers which is expected to further increase during the 2020 Olympics. However, this increase in tourism also exposes more people to hazardous areas, leading to greater vulnerabilities. This lecture will examine the role of tourism and disaster management within the context of resiliency and sustainability. We will first go over literature on tourism and disaster, before examining three areas of tourism and disaster research: The role of hotels in a disaster, transportation resiliency, and image recovery. June 23 (Saturday) Lecture 9: Sustainability science and solution scanning for operationalizing and implementing SDGs with consideration of SDGs interlinkages This lecture illustrates the evolution and landscape of sustainability science through the extensive literature survey, citation analysis, and my experiences as the managing editor of Sustainability Science journal published by Springer Nature since 2006. New relationship between science and society that leads scientists to go beyond ensuring a scientific foundation for policy and decision making based on specialized disciplinary knowledge to participating in the co‐production of knowledge for action through transdisciplinary research. This lecture also introduces theory and practices (case studies) regarding operationalization and local implementation of SDGs with inclusive and diverse approaches to achieve SDGs with consideration of SDGs interlinkages such as synergies and trade-offs across SDGs and targets in both developed and developing countries.
