SDGs future city

The town has recently been selected as an "SDGs future city" (* 2) from the country as a municipality that will make efforts and proposals for achieving SDGs (* 1).
SDGs are universally adopted international goals to realize a sustainable world. 17 goals aimed at achievement by 2030, such as "eradication of poverty" and "clean energy" are set.
The town has practiced and practiced community planning such as "practice of autonomy through participation of residents and information sharing", "efforts of environmental model cities", "creation of unique development rules", and so on. These efforts are goal 17 "partnership" and goal 7 "energy", goal 11 "town development that can continue living" if it replaces the 17 goals of SDGs, in other words the previous efforts of the town itself is SDGs It also seems that it was also an effort aimed at.

In town, we will continue to refine the town development so far and practice initiatives ahead. It is an effort to create a "mutual aid society" that can be handed over to children of the future, and efforts to create a sustainable town, and if it continues further, this effort itself will contribute to achieving the goals of SDGs, as a future city of SDGs We think that it is also an effort.
Also, when selecting SDGs future city, "NISEKO Living / model District Building Project" selected by "NISEKO Living / Model District Project" proposed by Niseko Town as a model project with the support of the country, selected as "Local Government SDGs Model Project" (* 3) We are promoting this policy.

SDGs are "sustainable development targets", which are unanimously adopted under the participation of over 150 member countries' leaders at the United Nations Summit in September 2015, "2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" ( The international goal from 2016 to 2030 as stated in the Action Plan).
It consists of 17 goals (targets) to realize a sustainable world and 169 related targets, pledging not to leave anyone on earth. For example, the first goal is "1 lose poverty". And, as a common plan of the world, "Tackle all over the world by participating in (participating in developing countries / developed countries)", "Tackle all problems at the same time (all issues are related, simultaneous in parallel)" The point is that it is characterized as such.
Pursuit of diverse targets shown in this 17 goals and 169 targets is actually related to our daily lives and contributes to solving local regional issues and promotes sustainable city planning is. And it is thought that Niseko town is "high affinity with Niseko town development" such as information sharing · participation of local residents to participate in self-government practice, landscape measures and environmental policy, strengthening of earning power, regional economic cycle etc. , We will promote that initiative with the past city planning.
