Reforestation Activity

Reforestation Activity

<Objective of the Program>

Along with local communities, we coordinate the ‘’ Mori wa Umi no Koibito Forestation Festival’’ since 1989, and the thinning of trees and bushes to maintain Satoyama*.

Due to the depopulation and to the resultant change in the structure of local industry and lifestyle, the good old Satoyama is changing its figure. By conserving Satoyama’s rich ecosystem, we aim to maintain both natural – and marine environment, whose lives are closely linked through rivers.

<Activities>
-Organize a “Mori wa Umi no Koibito Forestation Festival in every June
-Develop a Satoyama

Environmental Education

Environmental Education

<Objective of the Program>

Building of human resources is the top priority of our organization.

Human activities are the primary factor that affects the natural environment. Whether in urban or rural area, people are less conscious about nature. In its environmental educational program, Mori-Umi offers an opportunity for participants to have a direct contact with nature, and to develop proper understanding on natural environment.

-Organize on-site learning programs for elementary- and junior high school students
-Organize a ‘’Mori-Umi Kids school ‘’ during summer- and autumn vacations

Nature Conservation

Nature Conservation

We also raise awareness in the communities or at schools on natural environment and how it changes.

-Surveys on environmental changes after the Great East Japan Earthquake

Community development

Community development

<Objective of the Program>

“Community development’’ is a project that our organization commenced after the Great East Japan Earthquake. This incident brought about drastic changes in both the nature and the communities in Tohoku region. An example of such changes is a former residential area, which turned into a massive wetland after the Tsumani and is now a home for a number of rare species. We respect such natural environment born out of the quake, and aim to build a safe and nature-oriented community, without relying on man-made seawalls..

<Activities>
-Organize study workshop with experts
-Publicize our activities over the website
