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 been practicing and working on community development such as "practicing self-government through community participation and information sharing," "Eco-Model City initiatives," and "making unique development rules." If these initiatives are replaced with the 17 goals of the SDGs, they will be Goal 17 `` Partnership '', Goal 7 `` Energy '', Goal 11 `` City development that can continue to live '', in other words, I think that it was also the goal that was 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.
In addition, when selecting the SDGs Future City, it was also selected as a “municipal SDGs model project” (* 3), and with the support of the government, Niseko Town proposed the “NISEKO Life and Model District Construction Project” (* 4) ).

"SDGS Future City" selection certificate award ceremony held at the Prime Minister's Official Residence on 15th June 2018
