I applied for a course in "SciLets" offered by Mie University.

Starting in 2023, students will apply for the "SciLets" environmental recurrent system offered by Mie University and take the course online starting this year.

SciLets, offered by Mie University, is an online academic program designed to teach students about local and global environmental issues and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Students access the program via online video lectures and can earn certification as a Science, Community, and Environmental Human Resources Analyst/Expert upon completion of the course.

The program also offers options for on-the-job training and collaborative research on environmental technologies and interactions in different fields and industries.

Even those of us who primarily care for gardens can benefit from learning about local and global environmental issues and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Understanding these issues and goals can help gardeners make informed decisions about the plants they use in their gardens and how they work, which can have a significant impact on the environment and the community.

For example, gardeners who know the environmental impacts of certain plant species and gardening techniques, such as pesticide- and water-intensive plants, can choose more sustainable alternatives.

Similarly, gardeners who are familiar with the SDGs can align their work with the goals of the SDGs and contribute to their achievement.

Looking at trends among gardeners around the world, gardeners interested in reducing poverty and inequality can design gardens that provide food and income to low-income households and promote gender equality by involving women in planning and managing gardens. In addition, learning about local and global environmental issues and the SDGs can help gardeners understand the broader context of their work and how it relates to the well-being of their communities and the planet.

Environmental Stewardship.

Environmental stewardship includes mitigating the impact of human activities on the environment and protecting natural habitats and ecosystems. This can be accomplished through a variety of actions, such as conserving energy and water, reducing waste and pollution, protecting natural habitats and endangered species, and promoting sustainable land use and resource management.

By learning about the environmental impacts of different plants and methods, you will be able to choose those that are more sustainable and have less impact on the environment. For example, you can choose native plants that are adapted to the local environment and require less water and fertilizer, or use organic or natural pest control methods instead of synthetic pesticides.

Building Community.

Gardens bring people together and foster a sense of community. Take advantage of this opportunity to engage with your neighbors and address community issues. For example, a gardener interested in improving community health can design a garden with edible plants or create a space for outdoor physical activity.

By learning about the SDGs, we can understand the challenges facing our world today and how our work can contribute to global goals such as eradicating poverty, preserving the environment, and ensuring peace and prosperity.

Environmental stewardship is important because the natural environment provides a variety of benefits to humans and all living things, including clean air and water, fertile soil, food, medicine, recreation and aesthetic values.

It is also essential to maintaining the earth's natural systems and processes that sustain all life on the planet.

We are committed to learning about various environmental issues and natural systems every day and applying this knowledge to our work.
