An open symposium "Developing Visions for a Low-Carbon Society through Sustainable Development" will be held at Mita Kaigisho in Tokyo, on June 13, as part of a UK-Japan joint research project that investigates ways of moving towards a Low-Carbon Society by 2050. The launch of the project was announced on February 16, 2006, which also marked the first anniversary of the Kyoto Protocol.
