Founder and Director
Yusei is a 17 year old student based in Kobe City, Japan, and he is the Founder and Director of Real Warming.
Having been inspired by the film Princess Mononoke at the age of five, Yusei has been involved in various environmental initiatives in school and out in the real world. He is particularly passionate about the issue of climate change due to its complexity and severity of impact. The issue is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges humanity faces today, and is an urgent matter as 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.
