Seven years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake that struck the northeast of Japan on March 11, 2011. While the economy, communities, and livelihoods of the people in the hardest-hit regions have rebounded strongly, there are still those who have been unable to return to their homes living as evacuees awaiting the reconstruction of their home regions.
For seven years, a research group from Fukushima University has been examining not only the damage from the disaster, but various aspects of its effects on the region, including food safety, community rebuilding, disaster prevention policies, and more.
Join us at the JICC for a video presentation and panel discussion with four professors from the Fukushima Research Group, who will discuss their research and views on the current situation of recovery in the damaged areas as well as reports from those who are on the “front lines” of community recovery. The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A.
