On November 22, 2023, a press conference (hosted by Vector Vision Inc.) was held at the National Olympics Memorial Youth Center, regarding the joint project of the Signature Pavilion “LIVE EARTH JOURNEY” (theme: Totality of Life) at Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan (hereinafter referred to as “the Expo”), produced by Thematic Project Producer KAWAMORI Shoji.
At this presentation, we announced that the project “Connecting Life! Myaku-Myaku Living Things Quest” under the theme of “Nature Positive: Restoring Biodiversity,” would start on November 30, 500 days before the opening of the Expo. Through this project, we hope that people will experience that “we humans live on the basis of biodiversity,” which will lead to the realization of the theme of the Expo “Designing Future Society for Our Lives.”
Thematic Project Producer KAWAMORI Shoji as well as Biome Inc., Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan Inc., TOPPAN Holdings Inc., and Kura Sushi Inc., who are all involved in this project, presented their initiatives on various biodiversity and their enthusiasm for the project. As a guest speaker, Ms. Furukawa of the National Institution for Youth Education spoke about the importance of education through hands-on activities together with nature.
After today’s press conference, I am thrilled and very excited to be able to launch the Signature Pavilion “LIVE EARTH JOURNEY” joint project with our sponsors. We encourage everyone to participate in this project, which allows you to experience biodiversity firsthand and take the first step toward finding living creatures outdoors. I believe that by coming into contact with the brilliance of life in living things, everyone will experience an awareness of their own hidden senses and sensitivities. The Signature Pavilion “LIVE EARTH JOURNEY” will also feature a variety of exhibitions that will allow visitors to experience the brilliance of life.
