On 1 July 2006, IGES held an international symposium entitled "Towards a Sustainable Asia - Today's Decisions for Tomorrow's Generations" at the Yokohama Symposia (Yokohama City). It was held to further advance issues raised in the IGES White Paper Sustainable Asia 2005 and Beyond - In the pursuit of innovative policies, which presents an analysis on the current state of environmental issues in Asia and related proposals.
The venue for the symposium (open to the public) hosted a crowd of approximately 200, giving a glimpse into the depth of concern over Asian environment issues. Specialists active in the front lines from Japan, the Philippines, and China were invited, and a lively discussion was held from a global perspective based on the IGES White Paper. The discussion was geared to address what is occurring now in Asia, and what can be done with an eye to realising a sustainable Asia.
