Improving the Skills of Environmental Education Leaders

On 12 December 2013 a course was held in Hiratsuka with the aim of improving the skills of environmental education leaders in Kanagawa Prefecture. Dr. Chisa Umemiya, a researcher in the Climate and Energy Area at IGES, gave a lecture (sponsored by Kanagawa Environmental Research Center). There were discussions on the theme of the decline in tropical forests that are located in developing countries, and international efforts to curb this decline were considered using some examples from Thailand. Participants showed great interest in the theme of the event and after the lecture, they crowded round to ask questions, which resulted in a lively questions and answer session.
