NICE – NGO/ NPO to organize workcamps and other voluntary service projects mainly in Japan – Founder &Treasurer of NVDA/ Member of CCIVS and ALLIANCE/ Partner of SCI – Enjoying to create a new global age by mentally young people! — This workcamp has been organized with Onuma Milestone 22, a local NGO made by President of Fishermen’s Cooperative and Director of international exchange association since 2004. Though Onuma lake has been a popular tourism spot for a long time because of its beautiful scenery, it has been polluted by over use of agricultural chemicals in cattle farming and erosion from abandoned forests with alien trees. President of Cooperative has bought a forest and wants to revive it to original nature with native trees!
Volunteers will 1) work in the forest (removing some alien conifer trees that disturb growth of other plants and animals, maintain the foot paths, etc.), 2) make the rafts with reeds to purity the water of the lake and 3) do other work needed in the community (e.g., cleaning the lake, removing alien plants, organizing Eco Sponge Action, etc.)– Study Theme : 100 years plan of the forests and sustainable town planning.
