Seiyo Summer 2018


Introduction of Seiyo:

Seiyo is located in the Shikoku island of the Japanese archipelago. It is divided into three distinct parts- the mountainous area, the coastal region and the traditional village. Each part has its own charms- the mountainous region is where you can find rustic sceneries and old lifestyles, the coastal region is where oranges are grown and marine activities are bustling, and the traditional village is lined with merchant houses from the 18th century. 

Learning Points:

  • Study the social contexts of natural resource management in Seiyo.

  • Discuss the principles and ideas of sustainability and how they are adapted to the complex reality.

  • Discover how innovative solutions to problems caused by population decline, aging population and tourism require an integration of social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability.
