Projects for Biodiversity
On Oct. 26, 2010, the AEON Environmental Foundation came to an agreement with the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity to cooperate in the "Promotion of Environmental Education", "Implementation of Tree Planting" and "Continuation of Biodiversity Awards (International and Domestic)" in the form of a MOU (memorandum of understanding) exchanged in Nagoya where COP10 was held. Based on this memorandum, we are implementing the following activities to promote the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity which began in 2011.
The Awards for Biodiversity
In order to duly recognize outstanding efforts pertaining to the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, international and domestic awards were established and are awarded alternately every other year.
Promotion of Environmental Education
In order to develop human resources that are active with a global perspective in environmental fields, The AEON Environmental Foundation has made efforts such as hosting "Asia Students Environment Platform" (ASEP), donating solar power systems, collaboration with universities, and holding "Earth-friendly Essay and Activity Report Contests".
