The Activities and Expansion of Landcare: A Case Study of Agriculture in the Mountains of the Philippines
Institute for Social Ethics Colloquium #2, 2013

April 26, 2013

Landcare began as a volunteer movement in Australia in 1986 for taking care of the environment.

This movement does not seek to present solutions to regional environmental problems that merely treat symptoms as they appear, but by setting the focus on the local social and economic issues that lead to environmental problems local residents take the lead in finding comprehensive solutions to local environmental issues through cooperation between local governments, related bodies and other stakeholders.

Landcare has spread to tens of nations around the world and continues to grow.

Kazuki Kagohashi has participated as a joint researcher with permanent research fellow Michael Seigel as part of the Governance and Environmental Issues research project of the Nanzan University Institute for Social Ethics and during this colloquium he will present a detailed overview of the history and status of landcare efforts in the Philippines.

Based on this overview, Dr. Kagohashi will comment on the possible roles that landcare inspired action can play as we work towards the sustainable development of agricultural villages.
