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 have 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!!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This workcamp as a part of SCC (Stop Climate Change) project has been organized with NAP (Nobel Apolication of Plant resources) since 2016. NAP is a local NPO to recover natural ecosystem cycles by promoting the regeneration and rebirth of land & sea forests. It’s been hosting workcamps since 1992 that has made a significant impacts to create a forest on the reclaimed land which was built in the process of clearing the mercury from the bay. This forest bears new lives as a symbol of revival and is an important place to pray for the victims of Minamata Disease, as well as for the world to reflect on the effects of modern industrialization. As well as many other parts of Japan, bamboo trees, that was originally brought from China by human being, have been severely spreading and damaging the other trees and eco-system. There is also a new project to revitalize the marine environment. There is a lot of rubbish on the beaches, 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.
