Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This workcamp has been organized with a group of farmers since 1995. The project has been held mostly in March, but stopped in 2011-17 due to the local circumstances and revived in 2018. Since the workcamp in 2018 was successful, they have decided to continue. The project started by the links with the President of NICE who had a farm stay here in his student days. The island has rich, beautiful sub tropical nature with corral leaf on the beach without being polluted by the tourism. As the location is isolated and very far from the cities, they can hardly get the paid workers to help their farm work, so vols. help it to protect their industry and life!

Anforderungen

This workcamp has been organized with Akame no SATOYAMA wo Sodateru kai, a local environmental NPO for conservation of SATOYAMA forest since 1999. Since this area is close from 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. They founded the group in 1996 to collect donations to buy and protect lands, to accept people who want to enjoy nature, to maintain forests, to create a pond for dragonflies, to host 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 in ecological and sustainable way, which was neglected by modernization. We will try to revive it by global voluntary power!!

Anforderungen

Strong motivation and Physical strength are needed. One of the local hosts is a strict Japanese man who works hard for SATOYAMA and the environment with passion.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This project has been organized together with Shirakami Mountains Preservation Society (SMPS) since 2006. The Shirakami Mountains is one of Japanese valuable preserved natural forests consisting primarily of beech trees, registered as a World Natural Heritage in 1993. SMPS aims to preserve the natural beauty of the Shirakami Mountains by nurturing seedlings of beech trees, planting them, training mountain guide, etc. SMPS hosts tree-planting ceremony every June for preserving and promoting the value of it. They also preserve the forests near the Mutsu-bay, famous as production of scallops. Due to climate change, the sea water temperature increased abnormally and the most of scallops were dead. So SMPS started to preserve the forest there to let nutrient water flow to the ocean.

Anforderungen

Volunteers should prepare to work hard outside in good and bad weather and have high motivation for work in the forests actively with local people.
