NPO iPledge

The world is made of “determination”.
“What will happen to Japan?” “Society can’t change anyways”
In recent years, many of the younger generation have anxiety and are giving up on society. For them to change this view, depends on finding a place to meet people with various values and interests, and a time to notice connections between the current society and future issues.
We will change the younger generation’s sense of “anxiety” and “giving up” to that of “confidence” and “pride” by providing them with opportunities to meet people with a variety of values and interests, and through activities related to “Gomi = waste” that creates a sustainable future.

Environmental Design Laboratory ecotone

We are an environmental NPO/ NGO that develops activities in order to create a sustainable society from the citizens’ point of view. Kyoto, the central area of our activities, is where the Kyoto Protocol was adopted. At the same time, it is where many festivals and events are held throughout the year as one of the world’s top tourist cities. Unfortunately, the reality is that there are a lot of waste being produced at these festivals and events, through items such as disposable containers. In order to resolve such problems, we created reusable plates and cups as a countermeasure towards these environmental issues with the words “reuse” and “reduce” in mind. These reusable items have been distributed and used in many festivals and events so far. By creating new options for our society and with the cooperation beyond sectors in society, we will make movements to solve the problems of local communities and societies.

Subsequently, “ezorock” developed activities as a local organization. Aside from expanding the network of youths, they have developed projects to bring the ideas and the power of the youth to the regional issues of Hokkaido.

NPO Environmental Relations Association

Although there has been increasing interests in the environment amongst people, unfortunately it is difficult to actually get everyone to do something about it. In order to further promote environmental measures and conservation in Japan, we must bring in the vast majority of those “who are not actually acting now”. Our vision is based on this idea, and our mission is to create the necessary “framework” towards that purpose and goal.
