As four and half years have passed since the earthquake, the public's interest in Tohoku's recovery began to wane.

To connect Tohoku and young professionals who want to contribute to revitalization profects, ETIC. launched "Tohoku Open Academy" project, a collection of 3-day fieldworks with recovery leaders in the three affected prefectures, Miyagi, Iwate and Fukushima.

The fieldworks of the 1st batch has completed in the end of May, in total 20 fieldworks with 134 participants taken place.

After the 1st batch fieldworks, we see actions taken place among the participants. Some moved to local communities. Some prepared to start their own businesses. Some support activities in Tohoku while working in Tokyo.

To further promote their actions, we plan to 1) hold additional workshop and dialogue, 2) collaborate with Social Design Lab. at Rikkyo University to learn social issues in Tohoku deeply, and 3) hold a business plan competition to grant recovery projects in December. These activities will be covered by the fund and sponsorships.

Now we are preparing for the 2nd batch to be held in the near future.
