Furthermore, guest speaker Andries Tieleman will give a short presentation about Climate Reality.

The event is organised by Hope Step Japan!, a collective of Japanese residents who organises events every year around March 11, in which the Great Earthquake of 11 March 2011 is commemorated by means of various activities, which focus on how now after this earthquake that took place on 11 March 2011. In recent years, the organisation ensured that there is room for information provision, discussions, workshops, the possibility to buy products from Japan and more to create awareness related to post 311 Japan from different angles and to make people (re)think about the current living condition together and make positive steps forward. This is not only for Japan but for the entire globe.
