The seminar will be held in Okinawa from August 8th to 10th, 2024. We welcome submissions and participation from academia and industry. The theme of this year is "Sustainable Energy and Social Inclusion: Innovation, Impact, and Co-Building the Future."

The theme underscores the importance of integrating sustainable energy practices with a focus on social inclusion. By bringing together experts, researchers, policymakers, and industry leaders, we aim to foster a dynamic platform for discussions on groundbreaking innovations, their real-world impact, and the collaborative effort needed to shape a sustainable future.

We encourage participants to actively contribute to the discourse, sharing their knowledge and experiences to collectively address the challenges posed by the intersection of sustainable energy and social inclusion.

By co-building the future, we envision a society where energy solutions are not only technologically advanced but also socially inclusive, ensuring that the benefits of progress are accessible to all. We invite you to be a part of this transformative journey, where your contributions will play a crucial role in shaping a more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive future for generations to come. Together, let us explore new horizons and pave the way for a brighter and greener future.
