【Purpose】

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.

【Practical exercise】The participants will deepen their understanding (Hakoishi, Miyako City) through expeditions on the headwaters of the Hei River and climbing to the top of Mt. Kabutomyojin (Kugai Highland) with natural observation instructors, experiences in midstream areas and an experience-based exercise about the values of forests, rivers and seas and the relationships between them (experiment of anatomy of the cherry salmon, an experience of going down the rivers and collecting creatures inhabiting water).
