#44 SDGs Action Workshop – March 26
Effective use of bamboo (cutting bamboo, making bamboo charcoal, making compost)
If you take a look at the scenery when you ride a train or go out to the suburbs for a while, it is not uncommon to see bamboo forests. Nowadays, many forests are being replaced by bamboo forests. Bamboo is also an important plant, but too much of it is not good. The main reasons for this are the loss of biodiversity and the tendency for landslides to occur.
P&N is working to cut down these bamboos and return them to their original forests and fields. On March 26, we will hold an SDGs action workshop to make bamboo charcoal and compost using bamboo powder. We hope that you will be able to get away from your daily life and enjoy the scenery of the countryside while experiencing the SDGs initiatives through cutting down bamboo and making bamboo charcoal. We look forward to your participation.
