The Tokushima Prefectural Govt casts online forum on ethical consumption

The Consumer Policy Department of the Tokushima Prefectural Govt is promoting initiatives for consumer administration and education in cooperation with the Consumer Affairs Agency’s Strategic Headquarters for Frontiers of Consumer Policy, an agency established in Tokushima Prefecture as Japan’s hub for policy development and international operations.

What is the purpose of the forum?

The forum, which will be held on Oct. 25, 2022, will have 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 the prefecture and 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.
