JINOWA is fully charged and ready for the eventful season!
As the culmination of this year's JINOWA activities, we are organising a special talk event dedicated to World Soil Day.
On Thursday 2nd December we will be thinking about fashion.
Even if you're not interested in fashion, you'll always be wearing clothes.
The global fashion industry now accounts for 8-10% of carbon dioxide emissions, and the fashion industry consumes more energy than the aviation and shipping industries combined.
JINOWA invite two powerful activists calling for a change in the fashion industry, which is having a huge impact on the world's environmental problems.
Keynote: Dr Emma Kidd from the UK
Emma has launched her Fashion Detox Project in partnership with Glasgow Caledonian University in 2019 and the initiative has gained support and attention from organisations and media outlets across the globe.
The project ‘invites people who usually buy clothing often to stop buying clothes for 10 weeks and to reflect on this process online in a private forum’ sharing their experience with other participants.
Finally, she was chosen by the United Nations as the official ‘Best Practise’ for UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Special speaker: Noriko ISHIZAKA
The President of Ishizaka Sangyo, Japan
Noriko Ishizaka, President of Ishizaka Sangyo, a company that not only recycles waste but also works to restore soil and biodiversity.
Noriko has received numerous awards, like Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Award and has been invited to the global summit including World Circular Economy Forum at Davos in Switzerland.
Noriko will appear via video message, especially for JINOWA Talk. She’ll be talking about fashion, waste and non-biodegradable clothing.
As CEO of the industrial waste company, Noriko experienced the reaction as a child, when her neighbours in Saitama prefecture protested against the company, then run by her father. Today, Ms Ishizaka is confident enough in her plant’s green credentials that she has opened it to the public, with viewing platforms overlooking the giant processing floor. 10,000 visitors pass through every year.
The factory is just one project within Ishizaka Group’s community-centred enterprise. Like many groups tackling the growing problems of our consumer societies, they aim to instil an awareness of waste through place-based environmental education.
The waste problem goes beyond the scale of consumption. With approximately 73% of the Japanese archipelago occupied by mountains, and much of the rest crowded with people, there is little room for landfill, so what cannot be recycled is mostly burned. And recycling is surprisingly rare: Japan has one of the lowest recycling rates among OECD countries, at only 20% in 2017. Some 78% of the remaining waste is sent to incinerators—by far the highest among the OECD bloc. Fashion now become the centre of this problem.
OUR HOST OF JINOWA LIVE TALK SERIES
Carlo Nesler Fermentation expert/farmer (Viterbo, Italy)
In 2016 he founded the CibOfficina in Viterbo, a centre for production, training and experimentation, focused on fermentation and natural agriculture.
Originally from Bolzano, Carlo Nesler graduated from the DAMS in Bologna.
Since he was young, his passion for cooking and fermented foods led him to deepen his knowledge through the study and research of fermentation. After attending a permaculture design course lead by Saviana Parodi Delfino, he decided to share his fermentation notions by giving classes.
Carlo teaches fermentation throughout Italy and abroad. He collaborates with chefs with caliber of Norbert Niederkofler, Oliver Piras and Mauro Ricciardi as a consultant.
He translated into Italian Sandor Katz's Wild Fermentation, considered by many to be the most authoritative publication on the subject of fermentation. He continues his training within the Italian Permaculture Academy.
Skinner Tomoko is a bilingual voice-over artist, podcaster, life coach and Hawaiian cultural researcher. She lives on Hawaii’s Big Island with her American husband and their son. She enjoys living in the countryside, dancing the classical hula and working on the theme of “connecting with nature”.
