  1. 大手自動車メーカーがなかなか電気自動車の販売に踏み切れない中、東京の小さな会社、オートイーヴィは既に「ひまわり」という名のカラフルな電気自動車を発売している。

    石油の値段が大幅に上昇し、二酸化炭素排出量を削減しようと様々な取り組みが行われる中、電気電気自動車が日本でなかなか普及しないのはなぜなのだろうか?オートイーヴィの社長、元ラリードライバーの高岡氏の前には様々な課題が積み重なり、彼の挑戦は2009年度に大手自動車メーカーが電気自動車の販売に本格的に参入することによりさらに大きくなるのかもしれない。

  2. Located on the eastern shore of Australia’s tropical north, Shipton’s Flat is home to Marilyn, a Kuku Nyungkal Aboriginal woman, and her family.

    She has been living here the ancestral way – far removed from the services and conveniences of modern life – as part of the sublime performance of nature.

    Like her ancestors before her, Marilyn walks through the Nyungkal bubu, the Nyungkal’s country, acknowledging and conversing with the Spirit beings around her.

    Marilyn Wallace
    Marilyn Wallace, a land conservation coordinator from New Queensland, Australia and a member of the Kuku Nyungkal clan, said she and her band were given a new beginning after being granted autonomy over their homelands. She urged the official delegates to take the time to "stop, look, listen and learn". Wallace and 14 other forest rangers manage their homelands in collaboration with Australian resource officials. The team is in the process of conducting a biological inventory of their range, incorporating traditional knowledge with cutting edge GIS digital mapping systems. "We are preserving the wisdom of the elders with modern technology," she said, a reminder that native people are not just victims of climate change but key players in the protection and preservation of ecosystems.

  4. Kohei Hayamizu has a bold vision for the future: a city that is in itself an electric power station. A place where all its roads, bridges and sidewalks generate electricity from the vibrations produced by the cars and people that move over them.

    速水浩平氏は、将来に向けた大きなビジョンを持っている。発電する街を作ろうというのだ。道路、橋、歩道を通る人や車の振動を電気に変える仕組みを発明した。

  5. 様々な動植物が生息しながらも、人間との共存によりその多様性が保たれてきた日本の伝統的な農村ー「里山」
    日本の国土の40%にもなるといわれているが、一方では宅地開発が進み、一方では過疎化が進んでいる。
    このような様々な理由のため、里山は急激に消えつつある。

    里山の問題は日本の農業問題と重なるところが多く、根本的な変化が必要とされているのではないだろうか?

    国連大学高等研究所かなざわ・いしかわオペレーティングユニットは里山を研究しながら、
    これからの新しい里山のあり方を地元の研究者、里山で暮らす人々と
    協力しながら見つけていこうとしている。
