Kanazawa City promotes the “wood cultural city“ policy, which aims to conserve traditional wooden buildings while encouraging the use of locally produced wood for new construction, leading to the development of a wood cultural cityscape. The Government of Japan has also formulated the tax law for forest maintenance and conservation in 2019, and municipal governments are receiving tax revenue that can be used to maintain forest resources for future generations. Against this backdrop, SDGs Café #18 will discuss the future vision for the cityscape with wood in Kanazawa and how we can take action to develop the circulation of wood from the forest to urban planning and the wood cityscape.
