■ Survey background
In addition to conducting a follow-up survey of the UN75 initiative conducted by the United Nations (UN) specifically for the Japanese people, some unique questions were added to clarify the awareness tendency towards their own country (Japan) and the international community. In order to make concrete proposals to the Japanese and international communities as our research institute, we conducted this survey to obtain the numerical basis for it.
In addition to the items described in the summary of results, we collected and reported data using unique question items such as questions about social issues in Japan and the world that they are interested in, and questions about the position of Japan in the international community.
We will further investigate what kind of world system is specifically desired, and while examining the ideal state of Japan in the international community, revitalize people to make efforts to address social issues.
Furthermore, we will continue to make proposals to appropriate organizations based on the quantitative data obtained from the survey, and will form a society full of hope.
