Among the presentations, the "RuleWatcher" presented by OSINTech, which collects official announcements from governments and international organizations and organizes and visualizes them in 15 themes related to sustainability, attracted a lot of attention. “It is amazing that such a solution has emerged from Japan.”  “I think RuleWatcher should be introduced to the field of school education.”

In the "Global Action Talks" program, in which participants presented enlightening ideas that would have an impact on the world, our CEO, Masato Oda, was selected to give a speech on "TANKYU" in the Japanese language. He spoke about the importance for everyone of "TANKYU," an attitude of pursuing curiosity and truth with deep joy at the same time, as one solution to the problems of today, where multiple issues are intertwined. This idea was widely introduced to the world in multiple languages via a live broadcast.
