This SDGs Café was organized as a continuation of the previous event’s theme of “What Education can be Expected Today?”—“Who are going to be the bearers of the year 2030?” This time, the Headmaster of Kanazawa University High School, Mr. Yamamoto, was invited to IMAGINE the future education in Kanazawa with regard to the year 2030. Before that, the 5 guidelines of the IMAGINE Kanazawa 2030 SDGs Project were presented.
The University High School is special in the sense that the Ministry of Education has appointed it as a pioneering worldwide model school for placing great importance on sustainability-related education. Furthermore, the school has a commitment to international exchange, and has received visits from various institutions and corporations on several occasions.
As was discussed in the previous SDGs Café, Japan’s schooling system needs to be reevaluated. The University High School places a great deal of importance on personal research and development alongside exam-oriented content, in hopes that the combination of both traditional education and a more personal and creativity-orientated education can result in a truly sustainable education system.
