Yusei is a 17 year old student based in Kobe City, Japan, and he is the Founder and Director of Real Warming. He is recognized as one of three global Youth Fellows of Young Pioneers Forum, and oversees strategic development in the Asia Pacific region.
He believes climate change is a complex issue that affects human society and the environment in a multitude of aspects: economics, culture, demographics, technology, ecology, and much more. This issue requires immediate solutions because impacts may be irreversible if goals are not met within the next few decades.
Real Warming is a project that seeks to take an interdisciplinary approach, the three "IN"-roads, to deliver holistic impact towards advancing a net-zero future. Real Warming specifically focuses on the nexus of climate change and disinformation, aiming to INnovate, INitiate, and INspire people towards net-zero.
Through online platforms, Real Warming strives to
INnovate by offering a review of existing start-up companies which focus on practical problem solving to tackle the issue on disinformation
INitiate by educating how climate change disinformation can be avoided on an interdisciplinary level
INspire by fostering intellectual conversations on this issue by linking to disinformation campaigns and demonstrating the risks of relying on false information
All of these “IN”-roads assist the development of multidisciplinary perspectives and problem solving skills needed to tackle climate disinformation.
By the time he is 25, he would want to be known for advancing the intersectionality of natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and designing new mitigation strategies for CO2 emissions towards reducing the threat of global warming.
