As an educational resource, we practice marine education throughout the 9 years of elementary and junior high school. In the Asari Island activity, in addition to learning about the release of juvenile clams, extermination of foreign enemies, collection of clams, shipping to fisheries cooperatives, distribution mechanisms, etc., we are also working on product development that makes the best use of the goodness of the region and marine debris problems. (2) Hamatombetsu Junior Guide Academy (Esashi-gun, Hokkaido) Experience and learn about the attractive tourism resources of Hamatombetsu Town, spread the word, take pride in the hometown, entertain tourists visiting Honmachi, and actively promote friends inside and outside the town. The purpose is to develop human resources who are engaged in traditional tourism promotion and public relations activities. In 18 activities a year, we will study about Lake Kutcharo and the Ramsar Convention, observe the flowers of Beniya Natural Flower Preserve, and send it out in the form of a "guide". My experience was put to good use by my guide. As an example, at the "cold-resistant camp" where I spend the night digging a kamakura, I could feel the power of warm snow inside without collapsing even in the strong winds. In addition, by experiencing the industry, history, and culture of the town through fishing tours, visits to salmon and hatchery, and gold digging experiences, the natural environment and industry that we take for granted are closely related, and from our predecessors. I am learning that it has been passed down from time to time. ③ Marient "Chikyu" Tanken Club (Hachinohe City, Aomori Prefecture) Junior members (elementary and junior high school students) are involved with researchers from various countries, and the deep-sea exploration ship "Chikyu" is said to be the "Olympic venue on the sea". I want you to grow up as a scientist who is active in such fields. To that end, we have set the following goals. 1. 1. Experience, experience, and realize the simple question "What is the sea? What is the earth?", Accept the mysteries and toughness of life, and realize that each child is an irreplaceable existence. do that for me. 2. 2. I want to nurture scientists who can fly to the world, who can deeply understand the role and mission of the earth, be interested in the mysterious beginning of the universe, and accept the deep relationship between the earth and life. 3. 3. Knowing the existence of the International Integrated Ocean Drilling Project (IODP), many people of different nationalities and borders cooperate with each other, and many of the activities and research results of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) are produced by various roles and occupations. We want to help children get to know and draw out their interest, interest, and research in marine science for boys and girls. ④ Minamisanriku Boys and Girls Nature Survey Team (Motoyoshi-gun, Miyagi Prefecture) The Minamisanriku Boys and Girls Nature Survey Team was formed by elementary and junior high school students in the town when Shizugawa Bay in Minamisanriku Town was registered as a Ramsar Convention wetland. It is an eco club. Through efforts to investigate and convey the charm and value of the sea, mountains, villages, culture and history of Minamisanriku Town, we aim to preserve the blessings of nature and contribute to Wise Youth, which is the goal of the Ramsar Convention. We carry out activities about once a month for the purpose of investigating the local natural environment, culture, and history through experience and learning, and disseminating information. ■ Activity dissemination department (junior high school students) ① Ishikari City Ishikari Junior High School (Ishikari City, Hokkaido) The comprehensive learning of our school is to find and solve problems related to the creation of a sustainable society with the activity theme of "environment". We are engaged in learning activities with the goal of "cultivating the qualities and values ​​appropriate for forming a sustainable society by acquiring the abilities and attitudes necessary for Hokkaido." In addition, as a member of the UNESCO Associated Schools, (1) we will grasp contemporary issues from both "global" and "regional" perspectives. (3) In addition to what we can do to build a sustainable society, we will understand the need for social participation and participation and try to take action. The above three points are common to all grades. In particular, "Environmental learning on the Ishikari coast" has been ongoing for more than 10 years, investigating beach plants and environmental problems on the Ishikari coast, and making proposals for environmental conservation. (2) Tadami Municipal Tadami Junior High School (Minamiaizu-gun, Fukushima Prefecture) He was certified as a UNESCO Associated School in 2017 and is working on his ESD with the perspective of marine education. At our school, we aim to "cultivate students who can think about the sea from the mountains, grasp things from a bird's-eye view, and act by looking at familiar things." Two years ago, in January, the students started making "newspaper shopping bags." Since then, the students have made various improvements and used them at local stores (currently 10 stores). A newspaper shopping bag with a school sticker and a message card such as "I want to reduce plastic waste" and "I want you to be interested in preventing global warming" conveys the purpose of the activity to people inside and outside the town. It became the central activity of our school ESD to spread the idea. ③ Ishigaki City Sakieda Junior High School (Ishigaki City, Okinawa Prefecture) One of the serious environmental problems of Ishigaki Island is the outflow of red soil into the sea. The outflow of red soil has killed coral and other marine life, affecting fishing and tourism. Having witnessed such a situation, our school has been conducting an independent river survey in the area for seven years. To inherit the wisdom of our predecessors who have learned about the nature of the region and used the blessings of nature well by conducting hands-on learning such as environmental conservation activities in collaboration with local residents, local governments, governments, environmental groups, etc. centering on schools. Therefore, it fosters pride in the region, which leads to the conservation of the natural environment and the revitalization of the region. ■ Planning / Research Promotion Division ① Nakashibetsu Agricultural High School Meat Processing Research Group (Shibetsu-gun, Hokkaido) Planning / Research Name: Produce Ezo deer 2021 ~ Promotion of "whole" utilization based on SDGs ~ We plan Ezo deer It is the realization of "Nakashibetsu, a sustainable town" by "utilizing the whole". In Nakashibetsu Town, more than 1000 sika deer are exterminated and hunted annually, and more than 90% of the meat is utilized. However, most of them are used in pet food, and the current situation is that they are rarely used as meat. In addition, the utilization rate of by-products such as skin, horns, and fat is even lower, and most of them are discarded as industrial waste after treatment, which is also a big problem for waste treatment. The research content we are working on to solve this problem is (1) development of a new product / sika deer recipe aimed at improving the utilization rate as meat, and (2) utilizing the skin, fat, and horns that are discarded as by-products. Development of new regional specialties. The major goal is to utilize the hunted and exterminated sika deer "whole", including by-products, to reduce the waste associated with the extermination of sika deer and to effectively utilize it as a local resource. By developing the resource utilization of Yezo deer as a new industry in Nakashibetsu Town, we would like to create new employment in the town and lead to the regional development of Nakashibetsu Town. (2) Nayoro Sangyo High School, Department of Dairy Science, Dohoku Dairy Group (Nayoro City, Hokkaido) Planning / Research Name: Research on production of livestock products using high oleic acid-containing waste Sunflower oil produced by squeezing oil from Nayoro is characterized by containing abundant oleic acid. However, the problem was that the seeds were too small to be squeezed and the amount of discarded seeds was about 2 tons per year. The Dohoku Dairy Group considered using it as feed for dairy cows and chickens raised at our school, and attempted to work on research on livestock product production using waste containing high oleic acid. ③ Ono Agricultural High School Fruit Tree Major Group (Hokuto City, Hokkaido) Planning / Research Name: Aiming to utilize non-standard products in fruit tree production-Sustainable fruit tree production based on ASIA GAP-The Donan region where Ono Agricultural High School is located , It is one of the leading fruit tree producing areas in Hokkaido. And we got ASIA GAP certification in 2020. ASIAGAP advocates the importance of environmental protection agriculture. Through learning about fruit trees, we realized that many pesticides are used in fruit tree management work, and that a large amount of non-standard fruits and surplus products are produced as waste. Therefore, we decided to work on environmental protection agriculture centered on regional circulation with the aim of sustainable fruit tree production. ④ Kuki Technical High School, Department of Industrial Chemistry (Kuki City, Saitama Prefecture) Planning / Research Name: Goal to generate electricity that is kind to the earth with leftover cola "Coca cola to generate electricity that is kind to the earth and run a model bus" In the research class, we will create a liquid fuel cell and generate electricity with bioethanol and sugar, which are fuel resources that are "carbon-neutral" that do not emit greenhouse gases, and contribute to building a recycling-oriented society. Food waste such as leftover juice and carbonated drinks (Coca-Cola, Georgia, Ayataka and other Coca-Cola products) are generated using a liquid fuel cell created at Kuki Technical High School to create a model bath. make them run. Also, evaluate whether "cooling" or "heating" can be performed as an energy heat source for vending machines. In addition, we will manufacture "bioethanol" from leftover cola and study future energy. ⑤ Marine Plastics Lab Department of Environmental Systems, Faculty of Engineering, Musashino University (Koto-ku, Tokyo) Planning / Research Name: Recycling of marine plastics using marine waste collection equipment and its dissemination For the purpose of recycling marine plastics 1. Installation, 2. Survey of contents, 3. Prototype of recycled marine plastic products collected by marine waste collection equipment, 4.

Instead of mailing or transferring money, we visit the disaster-stricken areas and hand them over directly to interact with each other. In addition, we are also engaged in activities that do not weather the earthquake. Recently, natural disasters have occurred frequently, so we are continuing our activities as a "stricken area support project".・ Plastic waste oil conversion equipment ・ Biodiesel generators ・ Electric vehicles ・ Electric mario carts ・ Solar power generation ・ Disaster water purification equipment ・ Environmental awareness goods ・ Environmental events ・ We are making products that utilize resources such as interaction with disaster areas. .. In the neighboring area, we collect "unnecessary oil" from elementary and junior high schools, and the main body and cap of "PET bottle" that causes carbon dioxide emissions if thrown away. We are also working on SDGs such as the "microplastic problem" by using it as fuel. -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------------ * Efforts for sustainability of the Coca-Cola system The Coca-Cola system, which consists of Coca-Cola Japan Co., Ltd. and five bottling companies nationwide, is " To co-create the future while making changes through business to the important issues facing Japan, in line with the business purpose of "Providing moisture and freshness all over the world.
