 Water is the blood of Earth 〜 水は地球の血液  〜  Hands in hands like water  〜 水のように手をつなごう  


Our Basic Philosophy             

     We protect the Water of our Earth with Mother heart.
      We consider how to restore the original beautiful Earth for the following       generations and every being.
       We watch over sound water circulations of the Earth with Mother eyes.
      We have insight for truth to create the future Earth.
       We protect purity of Earth water with Mother hands.
      We work for youth education and lifelong education in Water       environment, and for other necessary work on related organizations.

 Every natural being on the Earth is alive by the grace of Water. The Water environments are, however, now facing at the critical conditions despite all the warnings and alerts done before. Those who won't keep their acquiescence to the fact should start acting to keep clean water environments and we are ones of them. The alerting sign of Mother Gaia, indicating the danger of heavy metal pollutions such as lead contaminations, should not be overlooked. It seems we have had a lot of hard problems piled up high. But Ponel, a tiny boy character who is a dew of water, appears and says to us: Natural providence is simple. Water is for every being. Water cannot be exclusive. Water likes sharing. It is very natural and simple.
Can you hear his voice? Even the weakest voice of yours will encourage us. And even a tiniest hand of yours we will take.

Purposes of Activities

To improve general consciousness for water environments, it is significant to research information on the latest global water conditions, provide people with opportunities of learning aquatic conservation, and decrease their anxieties caused by misunderstandings what is going on. We will know where to go not from seditious news but facts and figures. Cross-sectional activities among specialists shall be indispensable. Sensibilities of children open through water art are sometimes more energetic and catching the voice of nature than professionals and adults. The way children contact with nature is simple and dynamic. That's why we take a couple of ways: one is with specialists and empirical, the other is with children and artistic.

We have held more than 450 events including free workshops of water environmental education, water quality surveys, and exhibitions called “PONEL-ten” all over Japan as well as several countries. Water surveys have been done in around 40 countries as well as arctic and antarctic.

Children like the water dew character “Ponel” and soon make friends with him to learn everything about water through him. After the exhibition at the United Nations University, another PONEL-ten was held at Narita Airport, and children water goodwill ambassadors sent to Istanbul had Children Water Symposium there.
