Sustainability at Chubu University

In May 2007, Chubu University became the executive organization and applied to become a regional center of expertise on ESD (RCE) promoted by the United Nations University, and was certified in October of the same year. The following year, in January 2008, the Chubu ESD Center Council was established with Nagoya University and other regional universities, government agencies, NGOs/NPOs, and individual networks, and the Chubu ESD Center was officially established.

Against this background, Chubu University has been promoting activities centered on the Chubu Institute for Advanced Study in order to fully launch ESD/SDGs activities at Chubu University. Then, in April 2009, the International ESD Center was established with Director Ichiro Inazaki, and the name was changed to the International ESD/SDGs Center in April 2019. Currently, a steering committee consisting of 10 members discusses and promotes activities.
