Daisaku Kadokawa
Mayor of Kyoto

It is truly meaningful to hold the Youth Summit in Kyoto, the birthplace of the Kyoto Protocol, SDGs Future City, and the city that declared “Net-Zero by 2050” ahead of other municipalities in Japan.

Now that we are at a turning point in the times, we will work toward the realization of a prosperous society where youths can build dreams. In order to solve social issues such as decarbonization and resource recycling, bold efforts by all entities, transcending standpoints and regions, are required.

Under such circumstances, I hope that the movement created by this summit would become a big wave from Kyoto to the world.
