Determinant factors of citizen’s high motivation for the participation of environmental conservation: Deeply-discussion with citizen for the revitalization of Ashiu Forest
Located in Nantan City, Kyoto, the Kyoto University Ashiu Forest Research Station is a research field that Kyoto University has rented from the local community on a 99-year lease. Discussions on how we should utilize this research forest in new ways has led to the conclusion that researchers and residents should cooperate with each other in finding ways to preserve the traditional culture and natural environment of the community. During this ongoing process, I will record any changes in consciousness that may occur in the course of continued dialogue between researchers and residents in order to find determinant factors to motivate residents to participate in environmental protection.
