“Learning Journey in Tohoku” Applications Accepted Until May 20th (JST)

Posted on the 16 May 2012 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

“Learning Journey in Tohoku” Applications Accepted Until May 20th (JST)Japan for Sustainability (JFS),  “a non-profit communication platform to disseminate environmental information from Japan to the world,” is trying to make something good come out of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011.

The organization is sponsoring a Learning Journey in Tohoku which aims to offer students from both Tohoku and other parts of the world a learning journey; to observe change in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake and today. They will meet and listen to people who experienced the disaster and are working for the recovery of the disaster-affected area. At the end of the journey, there will be an opportunity to report what they have learned in the disaster area, and to present their hopes and dreams for creating a sustainable society in the future.

It sounds like a great opportunity to go abroad, learn firsthand, and think about how the area can comeback from disaster in a sustainable way. Here are the instructions for overseas students.
