#1. Preface by Yukihiro Takahashi, President of JpGU

At the recent general meeting of the representatives of the Japan
Geoscience Union (JpGU) 20 directors were elected for the 9th term
of office. At the subsequent board meeting I was appointed as the new
JpGU president. It is a great honor for me to lead the JpGU, which
consists of more than 10,000 members, and at the same time, I feel a
great responsibility. During my tenure I would like to promote effective
and efficient management of the organization and ask for the cooperation
of the directors, the representatives, and all members.

The 2022 Meeting of JpGU was held from the end of May to the beginning
of June incorporating a combination of both hybrid and online-only
sessions; this was after a two-year period when we were only able to
hold the meeting on online. I was pleased that many people visited
the venue for the first in-person and they were able to meet after
a long period of self-restraint due to the Covid pandemic. Although
there were some minor technical difficulties at the beginning of the
hybrid period, the total number of participants was about 7000, which
exceeded our expectations, and the initial impressions are that the
event was a great success. In cooperation with the rest of the leadership
of the JpGU, I will carefully examine the feedback from attendants
including the questionnaire. We will use this information to help
consider how best to overcome any problems raised and provide a more
satisfying experience for next years’ meeting. I would like to express
my sincere gratitude to everyone involved in the meeting: the conveners,
the presenters, and the participants. In particular, I would like to
take this opportunity to thank Prof. Koji Wada, the meeting committee
chair, those involved in the management and the secretariat, who have
held weekly meetings starting straight after the end of the 2021 meeting
and whose efforts and ingenuity have been instrumental in the success
of the 2022 meeting.

During my tenure as president, I aim to nurture a forward-looking and
positive JpGU, which will continue to follow the path set by the former
president Prof. Eiichi Tajika and include tackling such important issues
as financial stability, expansion and development of the secretariat,
promotion of diversity, and geoethics. I consider that fiscal stabilization
is a particularly urgent issue, and we in the JpGu leadership will
consider a wide variety of options to help tackle this problem. I also
consider that raising awareness of the importance of SDGs should be
reflected in activities of JpGU and I would like to emphasize these
issues as one of our priorities as we look to establish and promote
international cooperative relationships, including with developing

JpGU is an organization established to promote and support the Earth
and Planetary Science Community with particular focus on its members
including students. In order for individuals to prosper and shine,
I ask for the cooperation of all members in bringing together the
collective wisdom of the community to forge new ways to develop our
field, to create a vibrant community that is not restricted by the
boundaries of conventional fields and regions. I conclude these
greetings by asking once more for your active support and cooperation
to help develop JpGU and earth and planetary sciences.
