We support sustainable living through Yamamori (forestation).
At Morisho, a forestry worker, through the "4 projects for the effective use of forest resources," many citizens, not just those who are interested in forests and nature, will feel "more familiar with trees" and "people's participation".

Why do you sympathize with the SDGs?
Introducing efforts to the SDGs expresses to society that we are aiming for global optimization, not acting solely on the individual interests of individuals, companies, nations / regions, generations, industries, etc. It will be.
This means that it will be easier to collaborate with people and organizations that support the SDGs as a common language.
As a forestry worker, Morisho will announce to society "SDGs initiatives" and will actively collaborate with companies that have introduced SDGs initiatives to realize a more prosperous life.

Looking beyond the SDGs ... "Well being" towards a wellness society
"Wellness" literally means "health" in Japanese. According to the National University Corporation Ryukyu University , wellness is the first word proposed by Dr. Halbert Dan of the United States in 1961, and its meaning is " a state of being alive and shining ." It does not just mean physical health, but is a concept that broadly and comprehensively captures health, further fostering the value of valuing time spent with nature (forest) regardless of generation. I think. In addition, "well-being" literally means "happiness" and "health." A common reference in the definition of well-being is a passage in the preamble of the World Health Organization (WHO) Charter. “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Health does not mean that you are not sick or weak, but that you are physically, mentally, and socially satisfied. (Tentative translation of Japan WHO Association) "
We will recognize diversity together with "forest", "region", and "economy", and aim for a life where well-being is realized.
