a Brighter Future for the Next Generation

Today, the evolution and maturation of our society inevitably involves aging demographics and a low birth rate. In a nation which is confronted by this superannuation phase ahead of its global peers, the Outlook Foundation aims to establish in the next 30 years the first model by which such a society can continue to develop and prosper, and thus present a brighter future vision to younger generations.

To achieve this goal, we must incorporate core solutions such as restructuring education, reforming our social system to effectively integrate our younger workforce and support female workers, promoting the independence of local societies and economies, revitalizing our unique local cultures, implementing an objective, direct and open information system, and rising to a higher level of communication with other nations.

We are facing these challenges, discussing the issues in depth, summarizing them in proposals, and disseminating them to the world.

Exchanges of opinions and communication inspire new ideas. As a first step, we are distributing thematic newsletters on these challenges. Your candid opinions are always welcome.
