The Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability (GSAIS) is a new 5-year Graduate School aiming to produce top-level global leaders who can resolve the complex and diversified social issues with a strong sense of responsibility, humanity and morality. Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability is an integrated field of scholarship that studies the means to structuralize and communalize knowledge for human survivability. Through the studies at the GSAIS, students are expected to assume responsibility as global leaders and develop a high sense of mission and perspectives as well as highly developed management skills.
The main goal of the GSAIS International Symposiums on Human Survivability is to provide a fresh look at the global challenges facing humanity in areas such as energy, water, food, population, diseases, etc. This year’s symposium will focus on energy and more specifically, on the transformation to sustainable sources of energy. Another goal of this year’s symposium is to help develop a holistic and transdisciplinary perspective on global issues that we have called “human survivability studies” (HSS).
