Message from the Chairman

Chairman, GEA

会長 斉藤十朗

In the latter half of the 20th Century, after the Industrial Revolution, the human race has enjoyed material wealth through astonishing developments in science and technology. At the same time, we have cast little doubt over the lifestyle of mass production, mass consumption and mass discarding, and are now paying the price of a serious deterioration in the global environment.

In the 21st century, we must reflect upon our bad deed in the previous century, and achieve the "environmental century", setting a common goal prevent any further deterioration in the global environment, the foundation of human survival, and to build a sustainable future. Otherwise, there is no bright future for our species.

It is vital for all nations to strive for greater mutual understanding and cooperation, so that they can maintain the global environment in a healthy state for the future generation who will lead the world in the new century. Global environmental problems can only be solved by measures that are equal to the seriousness of the issues faced in many areas of the world. At the same time, such measures must respect the political, economic, social and cultural differences between countries and regions.

Global Environmental Action (GEA) remains committed to helping develop solutions to global environmental problems, by working together with community leaders from different countries who are active in a broad range of spheres and who exert significant influence over international public opinion.
