Locatie en vrije tijd

Tondabayashi city is located in Osaka prefecture, 60km south of Osaka city. The house is surrounded by many old houses and a bamboo forest.


This project is actively working for SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDGs 15 (Life on Land), self-organized by NICE for the first time. In 2011-13, the old couple (Kuroda san) kindly rent a traditional house in their land by free to NICE for it office in Osaka, through the connection of the environmental group in this city with which NICE has been co-organizing workcamps to protect satoyama forests since 1999. A staff and a few LTVs lived there to do the daily work and also to maintain the bamboo forest next to the house. Then, the office was moved to Osaka city and the husband passed away, but this year, the wife decided to donate it to NICE to be used as its office again. So, we will start renovating the house to be used as the office & volunteering/ training center. Thus, 2022 is the 25th Anniversary for NVDA (Network for Voluntary Development in Asia) and 20th Anniversary for Western NICE with Osaka office, so we will have the special events.
