Shinshu University is located in Nagano Prefecture, renowned in Japan for its commitment to environmental protection. The prefecture's symbol is an alpine bird called a Rock Ptarmigan. When Shinshu University first acquired ISO 14001 certification in 2001, it was a pioneer among national universities in Japan. Twenty years later, the University remains a world leader in its engagement with the challenges of creating a sustainable society. We continue to expand our environmental education programs and have placed our students at the heart of managing our five eco-campuses. Our staff and students work together, both locally and globally, towards making a world in which future generations can flourish.
