The GUNDAM Project, a cross-sectional project of the BANDAI NAMCO Group, held the “2nd GUNDAM
Conference” today, with the Group Chief GUNDAM Officer (CGO) and GUNDAM business supervisor, Koji Fujiwara
This was the second conference to be held where announcement has been made by the GUNDAM powered,
societal issue focused sustainability project, “GUNDAM UNIVERSAL CENTURY DEVELOPMENT ACTION (GUDA)” of a
new project within the field of education, “GUNDAM Educational Program,” as the third phase initiative to follow
the “Gunpla Recycling Project” and “Gundam Open Innovation ”. Announcement has also been made on updates to
the plans and measures announced in the first conference, to grow GUNDAM into a globally recognized IP
(intellectual property), along with announcement of new initiatives with external partners under the name, “GPARTNER,”
to bring about a new life-sized GUNDAM statue project and a new television series.
In future, we will continue to take on challenges that the BANDAI NAMCO Group cannot take on alone, to make it grow
into an SP (Social Property), an iconic figure for society, and to create a better future through GUNDAM. Please look
forward to the various GUNDAM projects in the future.
