Humankind must address numerous issues in the years ahead, including those related to the environment, energy, food, and health.
Having encountered difficulties in these fields much before many other countries, Japan feels duty-bound to help resolve them. Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City embodies that commitment, drawing on the partnerships among public, private, and academic sectors to create an open platform for all of humanity as well as a stage for resolving issues.
We are going well beyond the concept to materialize a New Vision for the Cities of Tomorrow through the Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City.
We formulated three urban development concepts to help Japan fulfill its commitment of tackling challenges for the future of the world.
The first concept is about creating an Environmental-Symbiotic City that is environmentally friendly.
The concept of the City of New Industry Creation focuses on fostering growth fields that become sources of new vitality for Japan.
The City of Health and Longevity concept is about people of all ages enjoying healthy and secure lives.
At Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City, we are leveraging tangible and intangible means, as well as our people's enthusiasm, to pursue optimal solutions in these fields and materialize our New Vision for the Cities of Tomorrow.
Initiatives to create a city of health and longevity include proposals for the enhancement of urban lifestyles for the elderly, health businesses in collaboration with local government bodies, preventive medicine from interdisciplinary perspectives, and the concept of a model for demonstrative experiments.
