Activities from Year 2008 (April-March) to 2010

Four years have passed since the Kagoshima Environmental Studies Program was launched in 2008. Focused on the environment, which is the most important issue of our time, the project is aimed at field-oriented research on Yakushima and Amami in order to disseminate information from Kagoshima University to the country at large and make policy proposals in an active way.

Research results are compiled in publications available at bookstores. From Year 2009 to 2010, Kagoshima Environmental Studies I, Kagoshima Environmental Studies II and Key-words Dictionary of Kagoshima Environment were published.

Events take place every year. In January 2011, Tokunoshima Forum was held in Tokunoshima and the President of Kagoshima University participated. As a project open to society, the working members include the faculty members of Kagoshima University, journalists, Kagoshima Prefectural Government staff and a representative of an interpretation services company.
