The Asahi Shimbun, under the motto “Let’s think together and create together”, aims to evolve into a "comprehensive media business that provides information and services to enrich lives" centered on journalism. We are setting a major goal to contribute to solving global issues through our coverage on newspaper pages and digital media and through hosting various events.

The Asahi World Forum is the company’s annual flagship event. The main theme for 2018 is “Commitment to Future Generations?Building a More Tolerant Society”. We will invite domestic and overseas experts, policy makers, government officials, business people and NPO members to participate in sessions to be held over three days for in-depth discussions on measures to realize a tolerant society that overcomes conflict and discrimination due to difference in religion, belief, race, gender, etc.

This is the third year of the Forum. It has evolved from the Asahi World Environmental Forum, which started in 2008, to deal with a broader range of issues. This year, we intend to deal with more subjects that are included in the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and consider, together with the audience, what we should do in order to “leave no one behind”.
