Many people visited the “Sea and Japan Project” booth and cleaned up the area around the event venue!
Many people stopped by the “Sea and Japan Project” booth. Visitors were asked to clean the area around the venue using Umigomi Zero Week’s original garbage bags, and as a commemoration, they were presented with UNIQLO x Umi and Nippon Project collaboration wear. Through the “Umi to Nihon Project” booth, we were able to see how participants’ awareness of marine litter was improving.
There is also a program where you can learn the rules for separating garbage while playing games!
At the same booth, a program was held to learn the rules for sorting garbage using the puzzle game “Puyo Puyo eSports.” In addition, the program “MY FOOTBALL KIT” was also implemented with the aim of learning and experiencing the appeal of sports through football. “MY FOOTBALL KIT” is a program that contributes to “high-quality education” and “responsibility to create and use” with the aim of cultivating rich thinking in children.
The participants were all smiles!
“I learned that cleaning the city leads to cleaning the sea!” “I will tell my homeroom teacher what I learned!”
“I enjoyed learning!”
“I want to participate in activities to clean the sea!”
I was able to hear a lot of voices like this.

CHANGE FOR THE BLUE
In 2018, as part of the Nippon Foundation’s “Umi to Nihon Project”, the goal is to raise the awareness of society as a whole that “no more litter will be thrown into the sea” by making the problem of marine litter a personal matter for each and every citizen. This project has been underway since November 2011.
We will collaborate with stakeholders from industry, government, academia, and citizens to create a marine litter reduction model and disseminate it both domestically and internationally.
