Lage und Freizeit

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This project is actively working for SDG2 (Zero Hunger) and SDGS15 (Life on Land). This project has been organized with E-Wasa (EW), a local non-profit organization since 2015. EW, meaning good Japanese tea, was created in 2012 to organize agricultural events, support new tea farmers who live in Wazuka. Short-term volunteer programs, workcamps, have been held every year since 2001 by another local group nearby. One of the tea farmers who was a camp leader of workcamp in Wazuka was fascinated by this place and became a tea farmer here. Then, he established EW for the future of Wazuka. Wazuka is famous for green tea, called Uji-cha, the name of a different area. However, the tea farmers in Wazuka want to promote their tea as Wazuka-cha. Now, Wazuka faces depopulation, lack of workers and an aging society since most of the youth leave the town. As a result, the number of abandoned tea farms increases and the town loses its tradition, life, custom and scenery. EW hopes to host international volunteers to work together to animate the town and revitalize the tea farms.

This project is actively working for SDGS15 (Life on Land). This project has been organized together with a local environmental non-profit organization (NPO) Akame no SATOYAMA wo Sodateru Kai (ASSK) since 1998. Since this area is close to big cities Osaka and Nagoya, there were plans to build a golf field and an incinerator, but local people stopped those plans by the movement called National Trust. ASSK founded the group in 1996 to collect donations to buy and protect lands. Also, ASSK accepts people who want to enjoy nature, and maintains forests, creates a pond for dragonflies, hosts national copse meeting, etc. SATOYAMA needs to be maintained by humans for its biodiversity and water adjustment function. Our ancestors had protected and utilized the forest ecologically and sustainably, which was neglected by modernization. We will try to revive it by voluntary global power!!
