Support of Various Activities and Organizations
As the word “Forum” in the name of the organization expresses, one of the objectives of Global Environmental Forum is to provide a place and opportunity for various people and groups working on the environmental issues. As a result, we have a number of activities which relate to various parties and hold secretariats of various activities.
Asian University Institute(AUI)
Seeking a sustainable development with peace, fairness and vigor in Asian countries, establishment of institutions of regional cooperation is required, fostering specialized leaders at the postgraduate level. For this, it is important to create an international regional university within a graduate school, as an intellectual platform, not only taking in existing graduate schools and students’ exchange at the national level, but also promoting Asian countries’ cooperation at the international level; thus founding Asian University Institute (AUI).
