Sustainable Development Goals

The World Rose Convention in Fukuyama aims to promote collaboration and co-creation based on the “Community Spirit through Roses". It seeks to expand these efforts, giving new meaning and value to the concept of "Roses." Through the World Rose Convention, we aim to realize a sustainable society known as "Fukuyama, the City of Roses."

What are SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)?

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (the 2030 Agenda) is a set of international development goals from 2016 to 2030, which was adopted by the UN Sustainable Development Summit held in September. The 2030 Agenda listed “Sustainable Development Goals” consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets in order to eradicate poverty and realize a sustainable world. The SDGs are universal goals applicable, not only to developing countries but also developed countries, and pledge “Leave no one behind.” through the implementation process. Japan makes utmost efforts to implement the 2030 Agenda with international community.

Promoting initiatives towards achieving the SDGs

The development of a peaceful town, human resource cultivation, and community formation through rose-themed community development significantly contribute to the achievement of the goals outlined in the SDGs. Therefore, we will make the SDGs a central focus of the convention, aiming to promote Fukuyama's efforts towards realizing a sustainable society. Through this convention, we will share these efforts with both local and global communities, ensuring their continuity for future generations.


The collaboration that emerged from fostering a community spirit through roses in Fukuyama has become the foundation of cooperation. The spirit of citizen-led community development, deeply ingrained throughout the city, is an essential element in achieving the goals of the SDGs in the present day. The concept of "the community spirit through roses" that originated from this endeavor can make Fukuyama a proud exemplar on the global stage as we strive towards a sustainable society.

Therefore, taking the opportunity of holding this convention, we will share the vision of "realizing a sustainable society through the Community Spirit through Roses" with citizens and participants. By instilling the Spirit, which can be said to be the identity of citizens, and expanding it into each field, we will improve the brand power of Fukuyama, show its presence, and aim for further evolution and development, contributing to a sustainable society.
