For example, the Kanazawa Junior Chamber, made up mainly of small-business owners, has been engaged in activities to promote to SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation); and such action is central to the SDGs being achieved at the local level. This symposium will provide a forum for discussion regarding the contribution that local business can make to realizing the SDGs.
