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.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

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!!

This project is actively working for SDG4 (Quality Education) and SDG10 (Reduced Inequalities). The worksite is the non-registered childcare facility where the host works.

And many registered facilities cancel parent's application because of beyond its capacity. The host works for parents who can't leave their child at such a registered childcare facility with various reasons.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This project is actively working for SDG13 (Climate Action) and SDGS15 (Life on Land). This project has been organized with Shokubutsu Shigen No Chikara (Power of Natural Resource), a local NPO. It’s been hosting short term workcamps every year since 1992 that has made various kinds of great impacts to create a forest on the reclaimed land, etc. Minamata had experienced the terrible industrial pollution called Minamata disease though it si completely safe and clean now. Since 2016, the project has been organized also as a part of SCC (Stop Climate Change) projects initiated by NICE with NVDA (Asian network) and partner NGOs in 3 other countries (Cambodia, Indonesia and India). As well as many other parts of Japan, bamboo trees, originally brought from China by human being, have been severely spreading and damaging the other trees and eco-system. Another work is to revitalize the marine environment. The beaches have a lot of rubbish, but when it’s clean, there is a lot of sea food such as oysters and sea urchins. Rehabilitation of seaweed forests is taking place since a few years ago. There will be also two short term workcamps in 09/20-10/03 and 10/25-11/07 to work and live together with this mid term workcamp. Last year, 4 LMTVs from 4 countries and 6 STVs from 5 countries, together with local people, maintained 1ha of bamboo forest, made 541 kg of charcoal and reduced 1.1 ton of CO2 emission.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

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!!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This project is actively working for SDG4 (Quality Education) and SDG10 (Reduced Inequalities). The worksite is the non-registered childcare facility where the host works. In Japan, there is a big issue that the number of children on waiting lists is increasing these days. Because the number of parents who are both working is increasing and they look for some registered childcare facilities to leave their child there. And many registered facilities cancel parent's application because of beyond its capacity. The host works for parents who can't leave their child at such a registered childcare facility with various reasons.
