“Mottainai Grandma World Report Exhibition in AOYAMA”
Mottainai Grandma World Report Exhibition “Global Issues and Children Around the World” touring from 2008 has come to Aoyama !
Various problems are occurring now on the earth.
Why is such a problem occurring such as climate change, problems of forest and living things disappearing, lack of food and water, war, refugees, children working problems, poverty, inequality etc.?
All we think is that these problems did not occur if I had thought of life the most.
The word "Mottainai" that conveys the importance of life and the message from Mottainai Grandma summarized the connection of these problems.
And we will tell you how these problems are connected with our lives through the present situation of children in the world who live in harsh environment.
How can we all live happily and peacefully?
Let's think together with Mottainai Grandma.
