An idea of "Future Earth," decadal international initiative on environmental changes, is the establishment of transdisciplinarity through collaboration between scientists and stakeholders. The subject should be solution-oriented one, and participants will make collaboration for achievement of solution being common goal.
Inbanuma is a closed lake located in Tokyo metropolitan area, and serve as a water resource of Chiba Prefecture. The water quality, however, keeps the worst one recently.
