Midori Ippai Project Activities LINE 340Gifu Midori Ippai Project - "Nagaragawa Fureai no Mori" Forest Volunteer Activity June 8, 2019 NTT West Gifu Group
On June 8, 2019 (Saturday), a forest volunteer activity to perform weeding and cleaning work at "Nagaragawa Fureai no Mori" was held in Mitahora of Gifu Prefecture. This activity was participated by a total of 73 people, including employees, family members of NTT West Gifu Group, as well as those from the "Yomoginokai" retirees' volunteer group.
Weather had been rainy until the previous day, and it was uncertain whether the event could be held. However, the weather got better in the morning and the event went on as scheduled.
Having to work on muddy and slippery ground, it was a tough task for the participants, but nonetheless the forest became amazingly clean, thanks to the cooperation of everyone.
At the end of the work, a hands-on session was held to experience "yoseue" (group planting) of flowers, a popular event among the participants. As with the past, there was great enthusiasm starting from the selection of flowers, and all the co-workers and family members who took part had an enjoyable time.
We hope the potted flowers that were brought back by the participants will grow and create an environment that is filled with greenery at their home too.
At the last round of activity, a small study session themed "the importance (role) of forests" was conducted. The scope has been broadened this time, with all the participants coming together to learn about the mechanism and impact of "global warming," including a quiz on measures that individuals can adopt to prevent global warming.
NTT West Gifu Group will continue to engage actively in efforts to promote such activities that contribute to conservation of the natural environment and endeavors for them to take root.
