Participating in "LUSH SUMMIT 2018"
Certified NPO corporation Fukushima 30 years project director
For the "LUSH SUMMIT 2018" participation on the schedule of February 11-18, I have been to London. As a member of everyone's data site, Co-representative Mr. Hito Ishimaru and the two men, the measurement site in Japan, and the current status of pollution The purpose was to report what was happening . Besides Japan, from the viewpoint of nature protection for many years against the movement of construction of the Kamiseki nuclear power plant in Yamaguchi " Association to protect the nature of Kamiseki " which has stopped construction , We perform advanced radioactivity measurement in Iwaki of Fukushima and voluntary examination of the thyroid gland A total of three groups participated, including the certified NPO “ Tarachine ”, which opened up to the clinic .
The next day I arrived, I was planning to set up the venue,
The site is still under construction and will not go inside.
Instead, we are in downtown London with the direction of LUSH
One of the Global Flagship Shops,
I went to the Oxford Street shop inspection.
The store, which has 3 floors, is full of energy from day to day on weekdays.
I felt the momentum of a company with approximately 930 stores in 49 countries.

In the head are the two of the following day, "Kadeno Nature Conservation Association",
The data site of two people and everyone on the platform will be on stage together
About stage talk.
In a stage like TED, progress is being made while simultaneous translation is in non-English language
It was the first time for LUSH, and I repeated many polite meetings in advance.
The venue I finally entered on 14th does not seem to have been working until just before
A high-quality floor design that spans 3 floors and covers all social issues in the world
A booth was created.
● State in the venue ●
We have a corner in the Environment = ENVIRONMENT booth,
In front of you are the booths that are active on pesticides such as neonicotinoids and bees,
Next to it was a uranium mine booth in Brazil.
Stage talk is full, but there is a deficiency in simultaneous interpretation,
It seems that I could not hear much in English.
About 200 LUSH staff from Japan occupy most of the audience,
Everyone listened eagerly.
The video of the day will be published on the LUSH page later with English subtitles.
● Pattern of stage talk ●
After the talk on the stage, people who visit the booth one after another
Continue to explain, both in a state where the throat is empty,
The two-day session ended in no time.
Besides LUSH staff in Japan, Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, France,
LUSH staff from around the world, such as Brazil, Korea, Taiwan etc.
He listened to the story.
For foreigners, what happened in Fukushima seven years ago and what is the current situation,
I think that the main transmission of basic information.
● State of booth ●
After the SUMMIT on the second day, coordinate opportunities for exchange in advance
Thanks to the person who did it, two people of Kamiseki are together,
We met at the English pub with the members of the UK anti-nuclear organization Kick Nuclear .
Many people meet for the first time, while the surrounding British people are busy (pubs are bustling everywhere!),
How unresponsive the distribution of leaflets in front of the Embassy of Japan in England,
It was possible to exchange information such as how severe the Japanese government's accident response was.
The next day was a free day before returning home.
Organized in advance by Kato Warberg hosted by Keiko
Ishimaru gave a lecture at a gathering centered on Japanese women in the UK .
Everyone said, "I thought Japan was a better country."
From there, I finally visited the CND office and exchanged information there.
We handed over all the English materials at hand, and as a data site for everyone,
We discussed what kind of support is needed.
Kate promises to spread information,
In addition, I was worried that Britain would become Prime Minister May and the government's rightward shift was remarkable.
It was a week that rushed through like this.
The first valuable opportunity that "everyone's data site" can convey overseas
I am grateful to LUSH for giving me this time.
I personally, I am very interested in LUSH doing such wonderful activities,
In the "Everyone Power" website ENECT, of which I am the editor-in-chief,
I will write a report article on March 7th, 12th and 19th.
As a data site for everyone, the details of the UK visit,
Everyone's data site event of March 18 (Sunday) 13:30 with videos
(The Tokyo Yoyogi Olympic Center) will report.
I hope you will visit many people.
