Environmental puppet & picturecard show ' Eco-Neko Za '

  • We have been doing the puppet & picturecard show, 'Eco-Neko Za' since 2001, with the aim of encouraging children in learning the environmental issues and practicing their activities with a lot of fun.
  • As the puppets we use are not big, around 30cms in height, the show is is intended for an audience of 10 - 20 per performance.
  • It doesn't matter whether it is a Western-style room or a Japanese-style room, if that room has a table that the puppets are put on to perform.
  • We also have a recycling handicraft class after the performance, matching the topics of shows.
  • We go and perform in Kansai-area, mainly in Kyoto.
    As for the details, please contact us.

Eco-Calendar Project

For the last 11 years, JEE, with the dedicated assistance of cartoonist High Moon (Dr. Hiroshi Takatsuki, Professor of Kyoto University's Environment Preservation Center), has produced an
Eco-calendar that is suitable for homes and schools as an environmental education aid. Each year 5-6,000 copies are printed and distributed, some carrying the name and details of other envronmental NGOs.
