Please join us Thursday September 14 at 7:00 pm on the 1st floor student lounge of the LUJ Main Building for the first Lakeland Lecture of the semester. "How Urban Farming Can Change the World: Sowing the Seeds of Sustainability", presented by Jon Walsh. Mr. Walsh, a native of New Zealand with several years experience as an urban farming consultant and teacher in Tokyo, will explain what urban farming is and how it can help to transform our cities and the lives of the people who live in our cities (in other words, all of us at LUJ!!) In addition, he will give some tips on "vertical farming"--how to grow food in even the tightest of Tokyo balconies or rooftops. The lecture is in English and everyone is invited---EAP students, Academic students, teachers, and staff, from LUJ and NIC. Lakeland Lectures are open to the public, too---if your family or friends are interested, please tell them. See you there!
Where do mountains come from? (And where do they go?) Why is Paris warmer than Sapporo, even though Paris is further north? Why are cities located in the places they are? How do cultures and languages grow apart? Why are some regions and some countries poor and others rich? These are the kinds of questions answered (in part) by geographers. Geography is the branch of science that tries to answers questions of the form: What is where and why is that there and not somewhere else? On Monday August 28th, there will be a one-day workshop introducing various aspects of geography in a informal and playful manner. Time: 10:00 ~ 16:00. Location: LUJ building. Instructor: Lajos Brons (philosopher *and* geographer). Sign up / information: mail to email@example.com
