It's been nearly two months since I mentioned our need for an English language portal for the Satoyama Satoumi Project, Kanazawa University. I am pleased to announce the launch of
The site is at its evolving stage as are our projects. We plan to replace it with something more comprehensive in the future, but since it's taking forever with the thesis supervision and the fiscal year-end and whatnot,, Meanwhile we've uploaded the Web version of our “turning the world from its tip” themed leaflet from COP10 Nagoya. Hats off to the Satoyama Meister students who have assisted in the work:
- COP10 theme design … Yuki Hagino
- Web design … Takaaki Kobayashi
- English text edit … Rachel Olanoff (auditor)
If the site image does not accurately reflect the individual designers' work, the blame goes to the coordinatior (me). We did this bit of work in a hurry to meet the First Global Conference on the International Partnership for the Satoyama Initiative (IPSI), 10-11 Mar. I'm writing this from Nagoya right now as Kanazawa University will be presenting at the Public Forum on the morning of the 11th.
See you there!
