#41 – SDG Action Workshop (2022.3.5)
— SDGs Satoyama & Forest Conservation Activities (Bamboo Cutting & Bamboo Fence Making)—
As a part of the global SDGs initiative, Peace & Nature is working with people of various nationalities, companies, students, and local communities to conserve satoyama and forests by reclaiming fallow land and maintaining bamboo forests. On March 5, we will hold a workshop on bamboo fence building in OZO-cho, Kita-ku, Kobe City. The number of bamboos has been increasing in OZO-cho, and there are places where the beautiful scenery is obscured and trees cannot grow because of the dim light. This time, we will cut down the increasing amount of bamboo and make bamboo fences (bamboo guardrails) using the bamboo. We would like to make the road safer for traffic by installing bamboo fences at the dangerous places at the edge of the road. The weather is still cold, but we hope you will enjoy the experience while taking a break from your daily life and enjoying the scenery of the countryside. We look forward to your participation.
