Naha Kokusai High School

When the Naha Kokusai High School visited OIST, it was an opportunity for us to introduce to them the OKEON Churamori Project.

The students visiting this time around do not have a science background. However, conservation can also be approached from an economic perspective, as it is a crucial aspect for sustaining tourism. Particularly, it is essential to take tourism into consideration as it brings in a lot of profit from other Asian countries and is a big part of Okinawa’s economy.

By introducing the OKEON Churamori Project and showing the students how much value tourism is in Okinawa, we are able to convey to them the importance of the natural environment that we take for granted. We hope that these students could come up with a new business model that will take into account both conservation and economic development.
