One year has passed since the earthquake and tsunami devastated the Tohoku area. Relief efforts quickly started and peaked during the Golden Week holiday. Since then, volunteerism has fallen steadily while much difficult recovery remains to be done. If you have already volunteered in Tohoku, would you do it again? If you haven't gone up yet, how should you get involved? Is there anything you can do from Tokyo? Join us to hear about the volunteer experiences from people who have given their time both in Tohoku and from Tokyo, and learn what is still needed as Tohoku moves forward with a long reconstruction phase. A panel discussion with organizations and individuals will present their past, current and future efforts in volunteering, aiming to share some lessons learned and regenerate interest in giving back to the community. Efforts encompass not just physical volunteering but also knowledge sharing for businesses that need assistance. The panel discussion will be followed by a cocktail networking party, where organizations such as Second Harvest Japan, Peace Boat, NADIA, and representatives from Hands On Tokyo (HOT), HOPE International Development Agency, Habitat for Humanity and Japan Emergency Network, will be available to explain more about how you can participate in their relief/reconstruction activities. Moderated by Melanie Brock of Meat Livestock Australia.
