Today (4/16/11) people world-wide are offering inspiration to the people of Japan (see below). In the spirit of the day’s event, I found this engaging video on eco-tourism to share. 
Maybe as Japan rebuilds and recovers, it can re-invent it’s relationship with the natural realm – and the world can support them by conscientious tourism of their beautiful country.

Today’s event:

Japan has provided inspiration for many generations of designers, and now it’s our turn to INSPIRE JAPAN. Over 100 PechaKucha cities are coming together TODAY to hold 20×20 events around the world to help raise money for reconstruction efforts in Japan.


PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.
Starting simultaneously in Tokyo and Christchurch, the events will move westward, city by city, creating a 24-hour non-stop wave of creative energy to let the people of Japan know the rest of the world is with them.
