It is easy to think that it is difficult to understand how to work on the SDGs, but when I saw many works at the exhibition, I was really surprised that elementary and junior high school students took the SDGs as their own and created works. I was.And I think the future of Japan is bright.I hope Riviera's efforts will spread all over the world.

Mr. Takashi Matsuo, Mayor of Kamakura City
SDGs have now become a universal language.However, I have always felt that it is quite difficult to give an explanation that will make you fall in love with its meaning.With such a broad and difficult definition of the SDGs as the theme, applicants of a wide range of age groups, from elementary school students to adults, seriously faced each other and created works with creative expressions that expressed their thoughtful and thoughtful essence.I would like to pay my respects to all of you who have made the hard work of intellectual work possible, and I am pleased that Kamakura City has been able to present the Mayor's Award and the Board of Education Award from among the many outstanding works.
