Forum 2021

How many more boundaries should I cross?​

Can we talk and collaborate?

November 7, sunday

​13: 00- Held online

An "intermediate" who plays an important role in the formation of a diversified society and commons, not in standardization and generalization. Things and people that mediate different domains and frameworks in various dimensions and encourage dialogue and collaboration. We are the ones who create new equilibrium, demand, and future by utilizing both sides from "between". The 5th Forum will be held at the International House of Japan in Toriizaka.

Innovation in the fog

Twenty years ago ——Two planes crashed into a skyscraper in New York on the morning of September 11, 2001. We have been informed that there are some people in the world who, for some reason, cannot deal with others.

But no time is more global and community solidarity than it is today. Today, we are facing a “chain of crisis” such as war, pandemics, climate change, and bias in world power.

Also, in conjunction with these 21st century problems, business and life are undergoing transformations. Therefore, new daily life, new working styles, and changes in the business paradigm will be actively talked about.

◉ It 's time for a big change of thinking. This is a great opportunity to innovate. Decarbonization and other climate change measures, regional revitalization, reconstruction of disaster-stricken areas, business re-creation, life-building for 100 years of life, re-learning, etc.  Innovation is necessary, and in any case, "multidimensional collaboration" is indispensable. It is self-evident that even if one person, one company, or one country works, it is completely insufficient.

That's where the "Intermediator", who aims for "collaboration between humans, machines, and nature," comes into play. It is the role of creating a place of collaboration consisting of diverse people, somehow forming mutual trust, and achieving more desirable results.  It's not just about human collaboration. It is a role that enables multidimensional collaborative work between humans, machines, and nature.

Intermediator is a value creator who brings innovation through “dialogue in diversity” while fully recognizing the differences between each other. It's not just an internal and external coordinator. It is also different from the so-called leader. Leaders recreate followers, "waiting for instructions," so this is unexploded for innovation.

◉ In recent years, the movement to create Clusters, Eco-systems, Communities, and Commons has been accelerating in each field with the aim of innovation. Intermediate is needed to give momentum to these movements. It's, so to speak, a lighthouse in the fog that calls for innovation.

I would like to connect the story of the global society and the future of humankind, such a magnificent scale story, with the story of the surrounding 3m that each is interested in, and make it time to draw tomorrow.
