Global Future Council on Japan

Council mission and objectives

The global environment crisis, coupled with pressing social and economic challenges, are increasingly putting pressure on Japan to make the transition to more sustainable socio-economic systems to build a more prosperous and inclusive future. In its 2020-2021 term, the Global Future Council on Japan will bring together a multi-stakeholder expert group to formulate a new vision and path for Japan’s sustainable transition, focusing primarily on the food system and the circular economy, two of the most critical areas for a country that relies heavily on global food and natural resources.

Forum Council Managers:
- Mariko Mori, Government Engagement Lead, Tokyo Office, World Economic Forum
- Saya Nagasawa, Coordinator, Tokyo Office, World Economic Forum

Mobilizing thought leadership for impact

The Global Future Councils serve as a brain trust for leaders from government, business and civil society, and support the Forum’s mission by bringing together experts bound by a shared mission to discuss the most critical issues, generate insights and analysis, and collaborate in shaping agendas.
