Takatoshi Nishiwaki
Governor of Kyoto Prefecture

Here in Kyoto, "the Kyoto Protocol" was born in 1997, just before you were born.We have been faced with a multitude of global issues such as energy, food, and climate change. In order to realize a sustainable and decarbonized society,it is necessary to accelerate our actions toward the common global goal of Carbon Neutrality by 2050.
I hope that the younger generation, who will be responsible for the future,will actively discuss a sustainable future at this Global Environment Youth Summit,and that they will create a major movement to transform society from here in Kyoto.
