This project is actively working for SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), organized together with the local group since 2019.

The pilgrims walk through this village before visiting ""Kakurin-ji temple""; the 20th temple out of 88 temples of the Shikoku Ohenro Pilgrimage. However, there are problems which should be solved such as aging and depopulation of the community these days, and locals haven't been able to find solutions for those problems. On the other hand, since more and more people from overseas visit for the Shikoku Ohenro Pilgrimage locals are trying to find new ways for ""omotenashi (hospitality)"". We would like to have more ideas to preserve our village with a long history and think of new ideas for hosting pilgrims, and start out with what we can do now. *Outcome of this workcamp: As it was very first workcamp here last year, 6 vols. from 4 countries came into local community as a pioneer and tried to contribute for the local, the local host also enjoyed exchanging own culture.

You may take care of free-range raised chickens and slaughter old enough chickens for eating by themselves as well. You sometimes work with mentally/physically challenged people who work at the same place. You also will help organizing a 3-days summer kids' camp held in 15-17 Aug.

This project is actively working for SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDGs 15 (Life on Land), organized together with ""Akame no SATOYAMA wo Sodateru kai"", a local environmental organization for conservation of SATOYAMA forest working in Nabari city since 1999. Because this area is relatively close to the big cities between Osaka and Nagoya, there were plans to build a golf field and a disposal center. However, the local people stopped those plans by collecting donations and buying the land. SATOYAMA needs to be maintained by humans for its biodiversity and water adjustment function. Our ancestors had protected and utilized the forest in an ecological and sustainable way, which has been neglected by modernization at many places in Japan. *Outcome of this workcamp: Over the last 20 years, 30 ha of SATOYAMA forest has been maintained by the previous volunteers. Please see the presentation of the camp leader for the IVS contest in Japan; https://www.slideshare.net/nice-workcamp/w55 (only Japanese for the moment, but you can at least enjoy the pictures!).

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

This project is actively working for SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), organized together with the local group since 2019. This village has been welcoming ""ohenro (pilgrims)"" who visit 88 temples in Shikoku since long time ago. The pilgrims walk through this village before visiting ""Kakurin-ji temple""; the 20th temple out of 88 temples of the Shikoku Ohenro Pilgrimage. However, there are problems which should be solved such as aging and depopulation of the community these days, and locals haven't been able to find solutions for those problems. On the other hand, since more and more people from overseas visit for the Shikoku Ohenro Pilgrimage locals are trying to find new ways for ""omotenashi (hospitality)"". We would like to have more ideas to preserve our village with a long history and think of new ideas for hosting pilgrims, and start out with what we can do now. *Outcome of this workcamp: As it was very first workcamp here last year, 6 vols. from 4 countries came into local community as a pioneer and tried to contribute for the local, the local host also enjoyed exchanging own culture. The local host wants to spread workcamp's attraction to the local community and decides to accept volunteers in this year.
