Sustainability Café 2012 -- "The Sustainability of Safety that determines the Future"

2012-3-29 (Thu) 6:30 a.m. - 8:00 p.m.

What is sustainability? How can we achieve it? As an activity to promote sustainability, the On-site Research Center for Sustainability Design of the Graduate School of Engineering is holding this Sustainability Café 2012 on Thursday, March 29.

There is no charge for attending this cafe. Please feel free to drop by and enjoy the café on your way home from work.

Topic of this café:

"What shall I eat for lunch today?" "How do you go from here to Osaka Station?" Questions like these are typical of how we gather information for making decisions about the many things we do daily. However, even a small amount of error in the information or in our understanding of the information can lead to untoward accidents. In this café we'll examine with attendees the problems and difficulties in communication and decision-making that too easily cause ordinary situations to become something we didn't expect or want.
