Lifelong Learning

Future Generations Alliance Foundation and its affiliate organizations (Kyoto Forum and the Institute for the Integrated Study of Future Generations) have produced a myriad of publications in a variety of languages (English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean) with the hope that someday all people will have access to such meaningful literature.
