Happo-en hosted our “SDGs: 2018 All Athlete Dinner” event on the night of July 27 in our Jour room, while increasing focus and awareness on the environment, such as the problem of plastic straws, and abnormal weather in Japan.
Over 150 attendees, who are concerned with food, the environment, production, human services, and sports, enjoyed the standpoints of other attendees in their talks based on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were put forth by the United Nations.
Happo-en makes efforts toward the following goals from the SDGs:

・Life on land

・Partnership for the goals

Our speakers were:
– Mr. Kimura, who succeeded in becoming the first-ever person to raise “Miracle Apples”
– Mr. Saeki, who supports the Edible Schoolyard Project in Japan
– Mr. Isobe, who farms in natural cultivation, with independently-minded people with disabilities
– Mr. Takayasu, who has knowledge of animal-welfare
– Mr. Seki, who studies the relationship between fermented food and intestines based on anatomical science
– Ms. Hoshiba, who decided to become a natural cultivation farmer, inspired by her illness once
– Mr. Kawada, who talked about farming as an athlete’s second career after they retire
– Mr. Fukagawa, who promotes sports and food education for disabled people at his organization, Inclusive Labo
At the event, we had a chance to hear about the food experiences of Paralympic athletes and soccer players (including a member of our national soccer team). All the attendees enjoyed our dishes, which our chefs made with naturally-cultivated ingredients, fermented food, and meat from humanely-raised animals, and enjoyed meeting with farmers at the naturally-cultivated product market at the event. It was a productive night for all the attendees.
The Sustainable Development Goals are going to be one of Happo-en’s goals going forward with this event as a start.
Happo-en’s summer events “Learning is Full of Adventures” will continue. Don’t miss them!
