Earth Camp had it’s special Golden Week program this May, 2014 in Minamisanriku, Earth Camp『Minamisanriku to the World』〜 2014 Spring Ambassadors 〜 !

An amazing team of participants from 4 countries and the local people of Minamisanriku, new-born “Earth Camp Ambassadors” inspired each other and spent a wonderful time together over the three days. Enjoying together nature in the area and cultural exchange, the Ambassadors brainstormed and exchanged ideas on how to connect Tohoku and the world.

■ Message(Sosha Mitsunaga Smith, founder)

sosha

I made my first trip to Tohoku, days after the North Eastern Japan Earthquake, to assist foreign aid groups in their efforts across the devastated coastal region. As time went on, my belief in the importance to build a sustainable effort in the area grew stronger, and as I graduated business school, was created in the form of Earth Camp in 2012.

The first program was held in the fields of Minamisanriku, along the coast in Northern Tohoku. Our hope is to invite people into the area together with new ideas and to strengthen the town’s international presence to build an even stronger community than it was before. My experiences taught me that although we face diverse issues across the world today, if we cross borders and combine ideas, we can create change. How do we live together in a world of diversity? How do we live side by side with nature? Earth Camp continues to explore these questions, towards a future where we live in coherence with ourselves and with nature, with ultimately no borders to set us apart – for ourselves and for those to come.
Join us in creating this movement – we look forward to meeting you!
