Project Description:

GOMI is the Japanese word for garbage. This project is about the long journey of GOMI on EARTH and what we can do about it! You are GOMI detectives in Part I. You will visualize and illustrate what GOMI is about when you follow its long journey to final destination on EARTH. You investigate and face the World GOMI Reality in Part II. You are GOMI activists at Part III, where you care about GOMI and reach your creative GOMI solutions. You can participate in Part I ~ Part III freely based on your class time and students’ ages. In addition, you have ‘Mottainai’ program facilitated by Aoyama Gakuin University students, which invites you to learn and experience Mottainai culture in Japan.
