CIRCULATION Sustainability
Improving the CIRCULATION of knowledge.
Eliminating opportunity gaps and maximizing human potential

All kinds of disparities still exist in the world, including differences in education, occupational choices, and wealth, depending on factors like religion, gender, the country of birth,
and the environment one lives in.
To create a better world for the next generation, we need a society where everyone can make the most of their potential and challenge themselves for the sake of the whole.
There are no boundaries to the CIRCULATION of "knowledge."
When someone's "knowledge" is passed on to someone else, it opens up opportunities, expands possibilities, and challenges each person it reaches.
CIRCULATION's Sustainability Statement aims to help create a sustainable society
where no one is left behind.
