What is the Riviera SDGs Work / Manga Award?

With the support of the NPO Riviera Future Creation Project, the “Riviera SDGs Action Executive Committee” will host the “Riviera SDGs Work / Manga Award (3rd)” again this year.
Since the Riviera Group started its marina business in 2001, the Riviera Group has been strongly aware of the challenges of climate change and started environmental activities. Launched the Future Creation Project. We have been working on sustainable activities for 2006 years.In addition, we have set up an executive committee in hopes of a “sustainable movement”, and since January 3, we have named it the “Riviera SDGs Festival” and have been working as a hub to connect people and carry out various initiatives.
The public exhibition “Riviera SDGs Work / Manga Award” held as part of the “Riviera SDGs Festival” is an award that continues to foster a chain of sustainable movements and expand the base. It is very popular with local governments and companies.There were more than 2 entries for the 400nd edition, and an exhibition was held to display all the original drawings.
In order to "leave no one behind", this 3rd edition will continue to believe in the "power of manga" from the previous time, and will be communicated in an easy-to-understand manner to anyone regardless of age and language barriers. We will newly establish the “SDGs Senryu Grand Prize”. From seniors who have spent the ultimate sustainable era where “mottainai” and “helping each other” are the norm, to children who are progressing in SDGs education, all generations will play a leading role and send out messages for a sustainable society.

■Purpose of the event

① Learn about the award and create opportunities to think about SDGs and sustainability
XNUMX. Expand the chain of SDGs across generations such as children, parents, and grandparents through the creation of works
③ Realize a society that recognizes diversity through the SDGs work / manga award, where no two works are the same


Ms. Miki Yamada, State Minister of the Environment

I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations on the opening of the 3rd Riviera SDGs Manga Award.It is very encouraging to see so many people working on the SDGs with passion.The themes of climate change, resource recycling, and biodiversity will become increasingly important in the future.In order to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, Japan will make strong efforts to transform the structure of the industrial society into a green society.In addition, “people” are the foundation for adapting to changing domestic and international trends and supporting our initiatives.We believe that each and every one of us should have a feeling of cherishing the environment and think and act on our own to solve the problems that are happening around us, which will lead to a sustainable society. I believe that the “Riviera SDGs Manga Contest” will support such efforts.

Mr. Shinjiro Koizumi, Member of the House of Representatives

Congratulations on holding the 3rd Riviera SDGs Manga Award.The Riviera SDGS Manga Award exhibition, which considers the environment and climate change, is held in a place where you can see the beautiful sea. I would be happy if it could be an opportunity to lead to action.I was born and raised in Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture, which is very close to the Riviera Zushi Marina.I've come to see the sea, and I've been healed and given strength by the sea, and on the other hand, I've seen sandy beaches that have been lost recently.Because the environment in my beloved hometown of Yokosuka has changed, I have been working to strengthen policies to combat climate change since my tenure as Minister of the Environment.I hope that this award will become a new power for the next generation.

Mr. Karen Makishima, Member of the House of Representatives

Congratulations to all the winners of the 3rd Riviera SDGs Manga Award.I heard that works were submitted by people of all generations.Ever since I served as the second Digital Minister, I have placed great importance on the concept of "future pull," which involves thinking about what needs to be done now in order to realize the future design.Furthermore, I have come to believe that it is important to formulate policies, plans, and plans that are not limited to one's own country or region, but are conscious of the global world.Japan is a major member of the G2 and this year's summit chair.I believe that this will be a year in which summit meetings and ministerial meetings will be held, promoting discussions with an eye toward the world, and discussing the SDGs at length.I would like everyone to open their eyes to the world from their immediate surroundings and work together to promote SDGs initiatives.

Mr. Yuji Kuroiwa, Governor of Kanagawa Prefecture

Out of over 1,400 entries, Rakuto Hasegawa, who created a report on reducing plastic waste, received the Kanagawa Prefectural Governor's Award.In addition, at the symposium held after the award ceremony, opinions were exchanged with the awardees, Mayor Kirigaya of Zushi City, Mayor of Yamanashi Town of Hayama Town, and ocean adventurer Kojiro Shiraishi.We listened to the story of how the awardees became aware of the issues and future activities, and heard the voices of the young people who will lead the next generation as adults, and felt the importance of working together.
Going forward, the prefecture will continue to work to expand individual SDGs actions.
