Project Description:

Power of the music! This project explores the harmonies from Taisho Koto, a traditional Japanese instrument, to open the way to the future.
As we collaborate with ‘Natural Disaster Youth Summit (NDYS), we welcome not only Taisho Koto, but also any other musical instruments.

‘Taisho koto’, musical instrument was invented in Japan. It has more than 100 years history since its release. This instrument was designed to be easily played so that people who are not experienced with playing musical instruments could learn. This project began so that many people around the world could learn and enjoy music.
More than Ten years have passed since we started Taisho Koto Project in 2009 in Canada. We have actively participated in the iEARN conferences for example, Taiwan and Argentina. And the Culture Night, too. Our project held the “Kotolympic 2016 in Niigata” in July 2016 and “Kotolympic 2018 in Niigata” in July 2018. Many iEARN teachers and students came to enjoy the events.
In 2024, we will host musical events by using Zoom in July or August.

The project addresses environmental problems at local, national, and global levels through students’ agency and innovation. Students conduct research on local geographic features of the home and project partner country (map, location, climate, etc.) in line with SDGs. Students collaborate in groups to identify local problems in line with SDG 2 and SDG 15. They do online research and go on field trips and meet with experts. They then ultimately take collaborative action on the issues they have examined.

Project Description:

The project aims at acknowledging student personal experiences, their perspectives on the present and the future, sharing student outlooks globally and creating the “Digital Visualisation”.

As the world around us comes into contact with obstacles and difficulties, it is important to hear and spread the opinions of young people in order to allow them to express their own personal experiences, and to grasp a better understanding of the present and the future.  As a result, a digital platform will be set up to allow young people to share their own visual drawings, illustrated letters, dedications, hopes and aspirations, promises, their letters/ presents to the world, and other creative works. This platform will lead to the creation of a VIRTUAL LETTER/ BOOK dedicated to the world.

Project Description:

How we produce and consume food is the single biggest threat to nature today. It’s a major driver of the emergence of infectious diseases, unhealthy diets are the biggest cause of non-communicable diseases and 1.9 billion people are obese or overweight. In schools we need to raise food awareness to stay healthy, reduce food waste and save the environment for a better future. The project aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal No: 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal No: 3 (Good heath and well-being), SDG 4 (Quality Education), and addresses local and global communities of students, teachers and parents to promote healthy eating habits, raise food waste awareness and ensure SEL through service-learning. Partner schools plan concrete, cross-curricular activities that reflect school cultures and meet the needs of sustainable development of school communities. The project promotes inquiry-based learning and student-initiated action.
