WEF is an NPO that builds, provides, and operates a citizen-participation-type infrastructure information platform under the vision of “We Democratize Infrastructure Management.”

In Japan, where the population is declining, it is structurally inevitable that the heavy burden of maintenance costs for aging infrastructure will be passed on to future generations. In order to overcome this situation, WEF is taking on the challenge of promoting innovation in the infrastructure industry by utilizing gamification and data science technologies and with the active participation of citizens who use the infrastructure.

WEF points out that it is difficult to know what the management and operation system is like, even though various infrastructures are used on a daily basis. Therefore, by visualizing the actual state of infrastructure, it will contribute to eliminating information asymmetry. In addition, WEF will provide incentives to citizen users who have provided information that contributes to the public interest, build a highly efficient and low-cost infrastructure maintenance and management platform, and work to promote its dissemination.Solving Japan's Infrastructure Crisis with Games !?
