This program for pupils and students is intended to help them develop an ability to contribute to constructing a sustainable society by deepening their recognition of the relationships between forests, rivers, seas and people through hydrospheric environmental educational activities for the cherry salmon belonging to the salmon genus of the salmon family, which is a symbol of the relationships between forests, rivers and seas, looking at local people and nature on the headwaters of the Hei River.
【Lecture】The participants will deepen their understanding of the new idea of FIV about the values of the relationships between forests, rivers and seas.
