General Incorporated Association,
Consortium of Collaborative Activities for Local Area Revitalization

Our consortium is an alliance formed by local governments, forest cooperatives, scientists and architects who have recognized the threat faced by the forestry lands that have supported the forests of Japan, which cover 70% of its land area, throughout our country’s long history. Our differing regions collaborate, working hard to improve themselves while engaging in future-focused consortium activities.
