About Making Kyushu Sustainable
Make Kyushu Sustainable
What the Tour de Kyushu aims to achieve
"Tour de Kyushu" is one of the largest professional cycling road races in Japan. We aim to hold this event next fall, touring the various prefectures of Kyushu.
The event will be held as a one-of-a-kind event to showcase Kyushu's unique nature, culture, and the future image we wish to portray to both domestic and international audiences, and to demonstrate Kyushu's recovery from the recent natural disasters.
We aim to create a future-oriented event that goes beyond a cycle race by making the event a realization of the SDGS for Kyushu. These include carbon-neutral and environmentally friendly operations, consideration for the natural environment, and the use and protection of Kyushu's abundant water resources.
Part of this commitment was to endorse and sign the UCI Charter for Climate Action as one of the 80 founding global members.
