Everyone knows the word Africa, but there is still much about the continent that is associated with deserts, lions, giraffes, and elephants, and that there are more than 3,000 languages and numerous ethnic groups and religions. Today, however, Africa is a continent with a great deal of natural resources and has become a continent that attracts the attention of many people. We are now approaching a very important time when we Japanese need to think about how we should deal with this change and what kind of attitude we should take toward the world in the next 10 to 20 years.
Last year's SEISA Africa Asia Bridge 2019 was an opportunity for us to join with people from many countries to talk and share in the beauty of Africa's diversity and possibilities. The fact that so many people, about 8,000 in number, gathered here to engage and recognize each other has opened the door to a new world for us.
On the other hand, in recent years, due to changes in the global situation and the spread of the new coronavirus on a global scale, the division between countries and people is becoming more apparent. It is precisely because of these circumstances that we should create a future for our children under the theme of "KYOSEI (Living Together in Harmony”, don't we? We would like to take this opportunity to explore how we Japanese can relate and connect with the people of these countries, and how we can act on the many problems that these countries are facing. We hope that this initiative will continue and become a seed for the next generation of young people to think and act on.
I would like to ask for your understanding and cooperation so that more young people, who are closer in spirit than in distance, will grow up in Japan and in other countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and engage in peacemaking and nation-building as friends. Thank you very much for your continued support.

The SDGs were adopted at the United Nations Summit in September 2015 and are 17 goals set by the 193 UN member countries to be achieved over the 15-year period from 2016 to 2030, and are a long-term social vector to 2030, and probably won't be receded from in the future.
The strategic use of the SDGs is believed to create opportunities for corporate management to innovate strategies, promote business innovation, and enhance brand value.
The strategic use of the SDGs is believed to create opportunities for corporate management to innovate strategies, promote business innovation, and enhance brand value. Lately, many people can be seen walking around town wearing the 17-colored donut-shaped SDGs pin badges on their chests.
What are the elements that support the SDGs? It is represented by the following five Ps.
People: End poverty and hunger in all its forms and dimensions and ensure that all human beings have dignity and are able to achieve their potential with equality and in a healthy environment (Goals 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6).
Prosperity: Ensure economic, social and technological progress in harmony with nature, while enabling all people to lead rich and fulfilling lives (Goals 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11)
Earth (Planet): Ensure that the needs of present and future generations are met by protecting the planet from degradation through sustainable consumption and production, sustainable management of natural resources and urgent responses to climate change (Goals 12, 13, 14 and 15).
Peace: Foster a peaceful, just and inclusive society free of fear and violence. Because sustainable development cannot be achieved without peace, and peace cannot be achieved without sustainable development (Goal 16).
Partnership: In a spirit of global solidarity and with special emphasis on the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable groups, we will further energize the global partnership for sustainable development with the participation of all countries and all peoples to mobilize the necessary means to implement this agenda (Goal 17)
SAAB’s activities are designed to teach children of SEISA schools who will learn the 5Ps of SDGs abide by The Three Guiding Principles of "Understand Each Other", "Leave Nobody Out" and "Make Friends.", and through the achievement of SDGs, children will be able to understand the world where the international society is striving to achieve.
We hope that all guests and parents will understand that this SAAB activity is an embodiment of SEISA's educational mission "to create a world where people accept each other and live together for world peace". And we sincerely hope that you will visit the program online and imagine that children with SEISA spirit will be sent around Japan and around the world to share the concept of "World Living Together in Harmony" with others.
