What’s IMAGINE KANAZAWA 2030?
A Partnership Project to achieve our city’s goals for 2030.
IMAGIME KANAZAWA 2030 is a project to make our city sustainable by 2030 through partnerships.
In order to tackle the challenges that are solvable today, it is vital that citizens, regions, NPOs, companies, and governmental administrations work together. We must also take into account cross-generational themes concerning the challenges which are not immediately solvable. Connecting across different generations multiplies the possible perspectives and potential.
The project, “IMAGINE KANAZAWA 2030”, which our launched to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It promotes partnerships among various actors to create collective impacts in “real and virtual communication” spaces on the SDGs.
A “real communication” space for SDGs study sessions, seminars etc. in which anyone can participate.
SDGs Café has been held since April 2019.
The city will continue to hold it once in a month or two months and now calls for collaborative events.
IMAGINE KANAZAWA 2030 Partners
IMAGINE KANAZAWA 2030 Partners is a platform created in order to realize the Kanazawa Future Visions. The platform aims to create a place to publish the partner’s initiatives for the promotion of SDGs, gather together their ideas and concerns, and engage in related dialogue together. In doing so, interdisciplinary actors can support each other and help to initiate new projects.
SDGs Meetings are stakeholder meetings held in order to discuss how to complete the Kanazawa SDGs 5 Courses of Action. The meetings first started in June 2019, and participants have included experts on education, the environment and IT, as well as students and city employees. In 2019, the Kanazawa Future Visions were created as a guide to achieve the SDGs in Kanazawa. In 2020, many discussions were held aiming to generate projects for the advancement of the Kanazawa Future Visions.

About IMAGINE KANAZAWA 2030
In order for Kanazawa to be sustainable in the three aspects (environment, society and the economy), Kanazawa City, the Junior Chamber International Kanazawa and the United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability Operating Unit Ishikawa/Kanazawa (UNU-IAS OUIK) partnered and made an agreement on 13 July, 2018 on joint research towards improving Kanazawa’s SDGs efforts.
The agreement contains their joint commitment and goals, their action plan and the layout of their work towards raising awareness of the SDGs. Their joint research workshop took place three times in the fiscal year 2019.
These workshops resulted in the “Kanazawa SDGs Joint Declaration” (in March 2019). It issued a “5 courses of action”-plan and the announcement of the project name “IMAGINE KANAZAWA 2030”.
