On Monday, March 18, 2024, Hokkaido University's Sapporo Campus was certified by the Ministry of the Environment as a "Site in Harmony with Nature" as an area that contributes to the conservation of biodiversity.


This is the second site at our university to be certified as a nature coexistence site, following the Uryu Research Forest, which was certified on Wednesday, October 25, 2023. In the future, certified natural symbiotic sites will be registered in the OECM international database. By being registered, we will directly contribute to achieving the 30by30 goal and contribute to the Kunming-Montreal Biodiversity Framework, a new global goal for biodiversity by 2030.
Hokkaido University will utilize its intellectual and physical assets to solve global issues and contribute to local communities, and will not only contribute to achieving the 30 by 30 goal, but also work to balance biodiversity conservation and climate change countermeasures. We will work to promote integrated sustainability.
