[HCG36-P05] Developing a water source forest conserved in a suburban park into an educational space

*Mie TAKEDA1 (1.Aichi Institute of Technology)

Keywords:Environmental Education

People who still use spring water for paddy fields and daily living know how to cherish the blessings of nature. In contrast, it is difficult for people in the modern age to learn that water from nature is a precious resource, while water resources are of serious global concern.
The aim of the project was to conduct investigations on soil, water quality, aquatic organisms, and vegetation in the water source forest by researchers in respective disciplines and develop it into an educational space to facilitate education for sustainable development. The forest, which is now a source of spring water used for paddy fields, serves as a field to pass on how to grow the soil sustainably in a suburban area to the next generation.
