    "縮小・高齢社会時代における持続可能な地域コミュニティのあり方”

    日本の持続可能性に関する課題の1つに縮小高齢社会があります。社会保障や経済規模に関する議論が広く行われるなか、急速な高齢化と人口減少という社会変化を先行的に経験しているのは、地方社会であり、農山村地域のコミュニティです。縮小高齢社会時代における持続可能な地域社会やコミュニティのあり方とはどのようなものなのでしょうか。全国で最も高齢化率と人口減少率の高い秋田県でのフィールドワークを通じてこの問いに取り組んでいます。日本が縮小高齢社会という人類がまだ経験したことのない現象に対応していくことで、2030年以降に顕在化してくるアジアをはじめとした途上国地域の高齢社会化への視座が得られると考えています。

    "Designing Sustainable Rural Community in the Era of Aging and Shrinking Society"

    Japan is experiencing two major demographic changes, aging and shrinking population. Rural regions are the frontline of various socio-economic changes caused by aging and shrinking population. A wide variety of challenges such as withdrawal for services both by public and private sectors, resource management (e.g. abandonment of houses, paddies, and public buildings), lack of mobility options, fading traditional knowledge, are emerging at rural communities. My main research interest is to design a sustainable community, not only in environmental dimension but also in socio-economic and cultural dimensions, under the aging and shrinking population in rural Japan through social learning approach. My research scope includes the anticipated aging societies in developing countries especially in Asia which are predicted to emerge after 2030.

    RESEARCH PROJECTS

    AkitaAgeLabo / アキタエイジラボ

    2016~

    AkitaAgeLabo is a platform project to develop local initiatives targeting aging society challenges in Akita Prefecture. In this project, we explore the future figures of regional societies and rural communities which are experiencing rapid aging and shrinking population. Our main interest through this project is to design a sustainable rural community in the time of aging and shrinking society. In 2016, we implemented a summer training program for Vietnamese university students about rural challenges in aging society, and well-being survey to local residents in several municipalities in Akita.

    秋田県をフィールドとした縮小高齢社会時代における持続可能な地方社会、農山村地域でのコミュニティのあり方に関するプラットフォーム・プロジェクト。同テーマに関して様々な主体によって実施されているプロジェクトをつなぐ役割をになうとともに、調査研究も行っている。2016年には、ベトナム大学生向けの高齢社会における課題を学ぶためのサマースクール、過疎高齢化が進行する自治体におけるウェルビーイングに関する調査を実施してた。Akita Age Labウェブサイトはこちら

    Rural Sustainability and Photography as Research Method / 農山村のサステイナビリティと研究手法としてのフォトグラフ

    2016~

    Photography is considered as one of the effective methods to describe one's perspective to a subject. This project aims to apply photography as a method of local residents to express their thoughts and feelings about future state of their communities in 10~20 years time. We organize photography workshops for local high school students.

    対象について言葉で表現しきれない部分を表現するために写真を研究手法として活用するプロジェクト。過疎高齢化が進行する農山村地域において、次世代が自身が将来に住む地域コミュニティのあり方をどう考えるかについてのワークショップを行い、このなかで意見の表現方法として写真を用いています。これまでは主に高校生を対象としたワークショップを実施してきています。

    Assessment of Regional Revitalization Initiatives / 地域おこしの評価手法

    2015~

    "Chiiki okoshi" has been a buzzword in Japan. It mean "regional revitalization" in terms of local economy, social activities, and environmental conservation. Assessing the performance of such initiatives both in quantitative and qualitative measures is the aim of this project. While quantitative methods have been applied already, qualitative methods are not yet well adopted.

    全国各地で地域おこしが展開されているなかで、その活動に対する評価方法についての議論はまだはじまったばかりと言えます。定量的に測れる側面だけでは捉えきれない効果について、どのように評価するべきなのか、という点がプロジェクトの主課題です。定性的な手法に基づく活動の評価のあり方について議論を展開していきます。

    Field-based Sustainability Education・Deep Dive Program / サステイナビリティ学をベースにした潜水型ラーニングジャーニー・Deep Diveプログラム

    Deep Dive is a field-based training program developed with two social entrepreneurs in education field. The program is designed partly based on sustainability science and the participants gain hands-on experience of systems thinking, fieldwork, and self-reflection. Through this project, we are prototyping a new form of training program based on sustainability science for early career employees at private companies and university students.

    様々な社会課題を取り上げ、それにどんな解決策を示すのか、そんな”What can we DO?”に取り組む課題解決型の教育・研修プログラムが増えているなか、そもそもある課題に向き合う自分はどんな存在なのか、個々のありようである”BE”に向き合うプログラムの必要性が高まっています。「そもそもどうして特定のテーマや事柄に強く心惹かれるのか?」「なぜ自分はそのことについて何かせずにはいられない気持ちになるのか?」、というような個々人の背景や想いに深く潜っていく"BE"を探る潜水型ラーニングジャーニー・Deep Diveのデザインと運営に取り組んでいます。プログラムではシステム思考やフィールドワーク、内省プロセスなどを実践を通じて学ぶことができ、プログラムの設計にはサステナビリティ学の知見を活用しています。
