Exploring an Innovative Model for Rural Revitalization
Summer is almost over and we are sowing the seeds for "Embrace Rural: Why it Matters" on October 22 at Japan Society.
They will be joined by Slow Food International's Richard McCarthy, who is collaborating with Mr. Sekihara on a writing project on ideas and actions that can revive rural Japan, and potentially America. The event will be moderated by Kate Cox (Editor, New Food Economy).
The event is co-organized by the Japan NPO Center, New Food Economy, Design and Urban Ecologies, Parsons, The New School for Social Research, and Slow Food New York City.
Tickets are available through our website and box office: (212) 715-1258.
