Announcement about Internet publishing of J.E.E. Newsletter

Thank you for subscribing to our J.E.E. newsletter for a long time.
Recently we have been posting the schedule and reports of events, but unfortunately we cannot include additional material as easily as before.
Recently many people have been looking at JEE's website, and the paper-based newsletter has become less important. So, for people who can access Internet, we would like to change to publishing the newsletter via Internet. This will save resources such as paper, printing ink, envelopes, etc. We would appreciate your cooperation.
If you wish to receive the newsletter via Internet, please access JEE's home page and click on the link to provide your name and e-mail address. We will keep your private details strictly confidential.
Of course, if you prefer paper, or do not use internet, we will continue to provide a paper version.
Thank you very much for your cooperation. (From the J.E.E. secretariat).

Those who can cooperate in changing to Internet distribution, please fill out this form and send it.


2019 J.E.E. Bilingual Eco-Calendar Now On Sale!
"12 Months in Touch with Soil"

calender imageThank you for your interest in the annually-produced Japan Environmental Exchange Eco-calendar. This year’s theme is “12 Months in Touch with Soil.”
The "Soil" under our feet is a solid foundation that supports life. Wanting to get in touch with the earth once again, we found many aspects of soil which we would like to share with you for one year in this calendar.
The artwork is by Mr. High Moon (Hiroshi Takatsuki), who has been illustrating the Eco-calendar for 28 years, since production began. He is the Director of Kyoto’s Miyako Ecology Center and emeritus professor, Kyoto University.
The calendar’s bilingual text (in Japanese and English) makes it a useful study tool. Phases of the moon are also shown. Please share it with people who are close to you. Together with the calendar, we include complimentary eco-postcards and a mini-calendar.
We look forward to receiving your order!
