United Nations University 5F Elizabeth Rose Hall
United Nations University Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability Operating Unit Ishikawa / Kanazawa(UNU-IAS OUIK) will host a symposium on 10 June 2017 at UNU Headquarters in Tokyo to commemorate the publication of the third volume in its Biocultural Diversity Series. Noto Satoumi Movement: Passing on the Wisdom of Living with the Sea is a bilingual Japanese and English booklet that focuses on lessons to be learned from the traditional fishing and farming practices that have long sustained this region of Japan.
“Satoumi” in Japanese refers to coastal villages where livelihoods of the local people are dependent on the coastal seas and have accumulated knowledge and wisdom living with the ocean. The symposium will explore such local traditional knowledge while introducing the various work supporting the sustainable development of coastal seas and marine resources, a responsibility or role not limited only to fishers.
