Project Description:

Theme: Climate Change and Disaster Reduction, Mitigation, and Reconstruction

This is a project in which children will learn the preciousness of human lives and how to reduce disaster impacts such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, landslides, tsunamis, droughts and so on through the communication and collaboration with global friends.

NDYS was first organized in Hyogo in May 2004 and started from September 2004, commemorating 10th year of great Hanshin Awaji Earthquake, Japan in 1995. We learned the importance of human lives and preparedness for disasters.

In recent years, it has been pointed out that extreme abnormal weather caused by climate change may be linked to an increase in large-scale natural disasters. Natural disasters such as heavy rain and floods are increasing in many parts of the world, and they become major obstacles not only to people’s lives, but also sustainable development. To take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts is an urgent global issue.

Abnormal weather : Solve the problem by global collaboration and save our lives!

Project Description:

This is a project that provides children entertainment as they see the transformation of a sheet of paper to a three-dimensional object. It does not take much space, much money, or much time. It only requires a sheet of paper and the instructions on how to fold origami. The project also contributes to others and the planet. Through folding origami, children can learn a new way of playing with paper that fosters ingenuity, originality, imagination, patience, and concentrated power. They also learn concentration and patience and can make small gifts to please others. They learn how to fold an origami crane, a symbol of world peace.
