About the purpose of a forum, and an organization

What is the Tsukuba 3E Forum?

It was collaboratively organized by universities, research institutes, and municipalities in 2007 with the aim of tackling research that establishes Tsukuba as an energy-saving, low-carbon city of science, based on the Tsukuba Eco City Concept. It operates on a forum of open discussion.

The goal is to "reduce CO2 emissions by 50% in Tsukuba by 2030 (Tsukuba 3E Declaration 2007)" while balancing the "3Es" of environment, energy, and economy. Task forces organized within the forum propose suggested technologies and systems to the city to achieve an eco city through demonstration and incorporation.

A committee has been created within the Tsukuba Science City Network (TSCN) that discusses objectives for the entire forum and draws up proposals for the city. This network also contributes to build an ideal, cpsmoplitan and mature city. The occurrence of the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 led to a call for the need to reassess energy policies, and investigations are being conducted that include the ideal vision for a new environmental city of the future that focuses on restoration.

What is the Tsukuba Eco City Concept?

The University of Tsukuba proposed the ""Tsukuba Eco City Initiative" as a collaborative, joint R&D project for Tsukuba Science City. It is the foundation for the establishment of the "Tsukuba 3E Forum."

The basic concept of the Tsukuba Eco City Initiative (as of 2007)
1.
Themes that involve Tsukuba Science City as a whole
2.
The ability of numerous incorporated to be involved through their areas of expertise
3.
A school-wide initiative for the University of Tsukuba
4.
Agreement with the demands and intents of the 3rd Science and Technology Basic Plan
5.
Agreement with the directionality of "Innovation 25"
6.
Conformity to the aims of Tsukuba City 3rd Stage
Tsukuba Eco City Initiative

Tsukuba 3E (Environment, Energy, Economy) Program
Developing energy conservation, green energy technologies, and systems that are integral to energy-saving urban design

Model Program for Environmental Preservation
Developing environmental technologies and systems that become the foundation of community formation that underpins recycling and symbiosis

Model Program for Education, Culture, and Health
Developing model neighborhoods that people want to live in that value health, education, culture, and cultural assets

Model Program for Fundamental Urban Rejuvenation
Creating secure, comfortable urban design that includes safe, low-pollution, energy-saving transportation systems and disaster prevention information systems

The goal of this concept is to rebuild Tsukuba Science City as an environmental model city, and city of technology and science education through the implementation of these programs. Out of the 4 programs, the Tsukuba 3E Program was given priority and launched first to tackle the urgent issue of global warming. As the 3E Program is being explored, the remaining 3 Eco City Initiative programs will be launched in turn and developed while sharing research outcomes from each program with an eye toward building a "'Tsukuba Eco City' that is a safe, secure, healthy, and cultured community that people want to live in."

Organization

The Tsukuba 3E Forum is an open discussion forum.

Tsukuba 3E forum

A committee has been formed for the purpose of running the forum, holding discussions regarding overall policy, and drawing up proposals. There are 8 organizations currently participating in the committee, and many research institutes have joined the task force.
