University of Tsukuba Pre-Strategic Initiatives Empirical Social Science Research Center
for Policy Solutions to Disparities and Inequalities


[5/26 15:10-] “Intra-generational and inter-generational fairness on environmental issues” (10th DDPI Seminar)

The DDPI project will continue to hold a seminar series intermittently in FY2022, focusing on policy solutions to disparities and inequalities and the potential of digital technology (digital democracy) for such solutions.

The 10th seminar will be presented by Ms. Soko Aoki, Associate Professor of Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Nagoya University, who specializes in environmental sociology. Since the Industrial Revolution, human beings have enjoyed an affluent and convenient lifestyle, with an explosive increase in energy use and a dramatic development of economy and science and technology. However, this lifestyle is now seen as one of the factors contributing to the deterioration of the global environment, and the sustainability of the earth for the future is now being questioned. The key issues when considering sustainability are “intra-generational fairness” and “inter-generational fairness. Simply considering the fairness and unfairness of environmental burdens and risks unevenly distributed among people of the same generation is not enough to ensure sustainability; at the same time, it is now considered necessary to understand burdens and risks across multiple generations, past, present, and future. In this seminar, Dr. Aoki, who has been discussing the conflict between fairness and unfairness, will present a topic and discuss the perspective of fairness and unfairness.

We look forward to your participation.
