Details of the Initiative
In Kidera Hajime’s seminar, practical projects for SDGs in town planning are being developed in some areas. In November 2020, practical fieldwork was carried out in connection with the SDGs and Waterside Utilization jointly with the Tokyo Metropolitan Park Association, a supervising organization of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, with the permission of the School of Political Science and Economics. Specifically, the seminar students participated in the Sumidagawa Marche to create a turnout and build a new culture area along the waterside of the Sumida-gawa River together with storekeepers and residents in the neighboring area of the Sumida-gawa River and carried out a practical local project Terasugoroku ? 17 Things You Can Do to survey the degree of the recognition of social and environmental issues in the world among local children and deepen the children’s understanding of those issues through a sugoroku game (Japanese board game) related to the SDGs.
(The project was carried out by taking the surest measures against COVID-19 in such a way as gaining a Thorough Infection Prevention Declaration Sticker from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.)
