Gaia mapping 2008


Photo mapping and contest;
[Gaia Mapping 2008]
http://photo-en.plus1project.jp/

Hello All,
'Do you know Japan hosts the G8 Summit in July?' Ask kids in Japan, and many of them, even high school students, answer 'No'. Why does our next generation have so little interest? Environmental problems are
the challenges that every single person on the earth must face and take action. As the first step of '+ 1 Project', NPO Gaia Initiative asks everyone to send 1 photo of 'things you care', 'people you care' and 'what you want to hand over to next generation' taken by cell phone camera and digital still camera. The project aims to provide everyone with an opportunity to look around oneself and 're-think' about our beloved home, Gaia.

* '+ 1 Project' encourages every individual and organization to take 1 step forward to make the better future.
