#42 – SDGs Action Workshop (2022.3.12)
SDGs Satoyama/Forest Conservation Activities (Revitalization of Kosanji Temple Road)
As part of the global SDGs, 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 12, we will hold a workshop in the OZO-cho area of Kita-ku, Kobe City, for the restoration of the Kosanji path. The road used to be an important path for the local people, but after the construction of another roadway, it was no longer used and was covered with plants, trees, and bamboo. By rehabilitating the Kosanji Road, we hope to restore the satoyama landscape and make it a place where people can learn about its charms. It will also help to prevent disasters and reduce damage to crops caused by wild animals. We hope that you will take this first step by leaving your daily life and enjoying the scenery of the countryside. We look forward to your participation.
