The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint for addressing the wide-ranging global challenges to achieving a more sustainable society. Sustainability is a major concern for a museum like ours, and we see it as our mission to advocate the sustainability agenda. Since our work involves preserving some of our history and culture for posterity, perhaps the museum itself can be likened to a large installation piece that helps people envision a sustainable future.

This exhibition offers an overview of the SDGs and what each of us can do to achieve them. Interactions with history at this museum have taught us that however little our individual contributions may be, they can collectively change the course of our future.

Preparing for this exhibition has been an educational experience for us, and we hope you will be excited to discover how these challenges can be met!

Period Friday, July 16, 2021–Sunday, October 17, 2021
Venue Special Exhibition Room (on the second floor of the Cultural Gallery), Toyota Automobile Museum
Description An overview of the SDGs will be given—including descriptions of the 17 goals and 169 targets along with 3 vehicles of interest.
We will also present how each of us can pursue the SDGs through our daily activities so you can take the ideas home and give them a try!
Exhibited cars ①Toyota MIRAI (2020)
Among the so-called carbon-neutral vehicles, the Mirai is the ultimate eco-car that runs on electricity produced by a reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. The car’s exhaust consists of nothing but clean air and water.

②Toyota Yaris [Hybrid] (2020)
An electric vehicle that also serves as an emergency mobile power source.
* The accessory power outlet is a factory option.

③ Rickshaw (Late Meiji Era)
Originated in Japan, the rickshaw was one of the earliest personal mobility vehicles. Rickshaws not only carried people around but also created jobs, offering solutions to a variety of social problems. The vehicle might inspire us to think more creatively about the SDGs.
