[Purpose of holding]
In 2015, SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) were announced by the United Nations. Since then, SDGs have come to be talked about in various situations. As for toilets, which are indispensable to our daily lives, we will look at them on a global scale in the future, and from the planning and design stage, we will focus not only on the perspective of the user, but also the perspective of the person who protects them, so that they can be used comfortably for as long as possible. It is important to ensure that
In order to be a comfortable toilet, proper maintenance (maintenance = cleaning, troubleshooting, etc.) is required. , the manager’s position and management methods have not been respected. Therefore, in this symposium, we will focus on “toilet and maintenance” as a pillar, and what we should do to aim for a toilet that everyone can use
comfortably for a long time. We would like to use this as an opportunity to discuss with stakeholders from different standpoints and raise a question about how toilets should be in a sustainable society.
