Organized together with Tochigi Conservation Corps (TCC). Conservation Corps is long term workcamp programs in USA where 10-20 youth work for local development and environment. About 25,000 vols. join every year. To create similar programs in Japan, TCC was created in 2009 by the leader who was a LMTV coordinator of NICE. Because there are few children who are able to play and grown up in nature, TCC creates a children’s forest in which local community residents can play.



We will 1) maintain/ upgrade the children's forest 2) maintain bamboo forest 3) involve many people who has interesting environmental projects (Ex. to organize weekend workcamp) 4) revive the forest in disaster area in Iwaki city, Fukushima that got huge damaged by Tsunami.
