Sustainable development is one of the most urgent and fundamental challenges for today’s society, calling for sound, comprehensive and integrated research across disciplinary borders in order to address the pressing problems or our time: How can we stabilize economic systems and what management systems do we need for that? What is key to solving the accumulation of public and private debt and providing more sustainable welfare services? These problems are all so tightly connected to each other that we need to systematically address them and to handle them all at the policy level.
And also , Most important thing is Innovation in City and Region.
I am Akihabara and Akiba(Tokyo Japan) specialist (Ph.D. Candidate (ABD)).
