TOKUSHIMA, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Consumer Policy Department of the Tokushima Prefectural Government is currently promoting initiatives for consumer administration and education in cooperation with the Consumer Affairs Agency’s Strategic Headquarters for Frontiers of Consumer Policy, a national agency established in Tokushima Prefecture as Japan's hub for policy development and international operations in consumer administration.
The forum, which will be held on Oct. 25, 2022, will have leading experts from various countries offer opinions and recommendations that promote "ethical consumption" and "sustainable fashion" --from "awareness" to "practices,"-- in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030 and carbon neutrality goal by 2050. We will also have participants from the younger generation from within the prefecture and from overseas to join us as we continue connecting our efforts into the future.
The forum will be live-streamed on the website below. We hope that the forthcoming forum will facilitate meaningful discussions leading to the progress of international consumer policy and consumer behavior toward a sustainable society for everyone around the world.
