Online SDGs Cross-Cultural Collaborative Learning - MOTTAINAI Program
Duration: 6 weeks
MOTTAINAI is a popular Japanese word, meaning "what a waste!" with a sense of regret of over waste. This word has been known among ecologists in the world since Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Maathai, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, introduced this word “Mottainai” as a slogan for environmental protection.
In this project, students will have an opportunity to think about the conservation of the natural resources from familiar things.
