Peace & Nature is a group of people of all ages and nationalities who are interested in food and the environment who have joined together to take action. We believe our role is to create more opportunities for children and young people to learn in nature, and encourage them to feel, think, and act for themselves. Our adult members support this process, increasing the number of young people aware of food safety and environmental conservation. We have lots of fun programs for families who want their children to experience nature, students, and youth. We welcome you to join us!

Corporate Memberships

Corporate Memberships

Our purpose is to pass on a sustainable environment to the next generation.  Our adult members of all generations and nationalities collaborate to help children learn in nature and grow into Green Leaders who will create our future. But this is a big goal, and we can’t accomplish it alone. We are recruiting corporate members who wish to support us as part of your CSR activities. Our children have hands-on experiences, interact with rural residents, and encounter traditional Japanese culture to learn wisdom on living in harmony with nature. They also have natural interactions in English with our members of various nationalities, and we are working to contribute to cultivating young people who can act in the global community.

We welcome your interest and hope you will become a corporate member.
