Shonan Style and FM Yokohama will participate as Carnival Shonan official media supporters! Setting up a special booth
Prior to recruiting Carnival Shonan PR supporters, it was decided that Shonan Style and FM Yokohama will participate in Carnival Shonan as official media supporters. In addition to transmitting information to multiple generations, we plan to set up a special booth on the day and prepare a lot of ethical content.
It is no exaggeration to say that Shonan is the most ethical city in Japan. Shonan Style Magazine, which celebrated its 24th anniversary, has set up a series called “Shonan Sustainable Action” every issue to introduce Shonan’s ethical culture. A spin-off from such a series to a real event. Such a feeling matches this carnival Shonan, organizes the Shonan style area, and expresses the world view of the magazine. We plan to have fun and ethical content such as “Sustainable Wood Action”, Marche, workshops, etc., which collects waste materials from construction companies and allows participants to use them freely. FM Yokohama
FM Yokohama, which opened in 1985, is responding to recent climate change and environmental problems, -Let’s protect the sea! ～Change the consciousness of Kanagawa citizens～Project- has started. Under the slogan “Change For The Blue” of The Nippon Foundation’s “Umi to Nihon Project”, we broadcast programs that deal with environmental issues and environmental activities, produce and broadcast original audio dramas on the theme of marine litter, and host marathons. Held the “FM Yokohama Marathon 2022 de Garbage Pickup”, which combined the event with garbage pick-up activities, and held the Morito Coast Beach Cleanup in collaboration with a live wide program. Japan as a whole will work together to increase the number of people who are interested in the ocean and take on the challenge of changing the future of the ocean. We are promoting activities aimed at zero marine litter. At Carnival Shonan, a special booth will be set up, and staff from the Kanagawa Coastal Beautification Foundation will hold several sessions of “Special Sea Litter Classes,” while reporter Kentaro Tatsuguchi will liven up the booth throughout the day. We are also planning to sell goods.
