This symposium was made possible by INTESDA, The International Education for Sustainable Development Alliance, which is a diverse community of educators, academics and nonprofit professionals founded in 2015, in part, to support the Sustainable Development Global Goals set by the United Nations. It is committed to addressing sustainable development issues through capacity building, advocacy, networking and sharing knowledge.

Finally, on behalf of our team, we would like to extend our deepest thanks to the people of Hiroshima, Japan for their support and gracious hospitality.
