Hokkaido University Museum, Biomimetics Citizen Seminar, and Chitose University of Science and Technology Regional Collaboration Center will be holding the 2nd special series ``Regional Studies: History'' jointly held by Hokkaido University Museum Biomimetics Citizen Seminar and Chitose University of Science and Technology Open Science Park Chitose. ``A Sustainable Future Created by Learning from the World and the Climate: Ecosystem Services and Coexistence with Nature Revealed from Natural History'' will be held on December 9th.


Now, the question of how to coexist with nature and create a sustainable society in the after-corona and with-corona era is being questioned. In the second installment of this special series, we will consider the current situation and challenges towards realizing sustainable regions, with the theme of ``Regional studies: learning from history and developing a sustainable future through climate''. Furthermore, in modern society, also known as the Anthropocene, where climate change symbolized by global warming, depletion of energy and resources, and deterioration of biodiversity and the natural environment are urgent issues, regional studies can be used to promote sustainable development. In order to approach the future of the region, three perspectives toward sustainability are essential: "carbon neutral," "circular economy," and "nature positive." is. We decided to create a place for dialogue (transscience) to discuss blueprints for sustainable regions with various stakeholders.
