Teenagers in the Disaster Hit Communities Striving to be Citizens of the World (Episode #229)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 4, 2014 -- 1:30 PM

The Paris-based OECD (Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development) launched the OECD Tohoku School project in the spring of 2012 with the co-operation of the Japanese Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Ministry and educational institutions in Japan's devastated Tohoku region. The two-year project aims to mentor teenagers in the Tohoku region so that they might carve out international careers. Some 80 teenagers take part in the project. International business people and journalists mentor them in organization, creativity and international awareness with the goal to bring "Tohoku to the world." Planning and fund-raising are underway for an event in Paris in summer 2014. Twenty of the participating teenagers went to Paris in May 2013 to help organize the event and meet with local teenagers. This program will look at what the teenagers are learning in the Tohoku School project, how they are maturing and where they hope to go in the future.

Projects for Future Generations? A Year at the OECD Tohoku School (Episode #231)

KQED World: Fri, Apr 4, 2014 -- 1:00 PM

The Canadian filmmaker Nicolina Lanni has been producing a documentary on debris from the March 2011disaster that has washed up on North American shores. The items testify to what happened and tell stories about their owners. Lanni sorted through some of this debris and tried to return items of likely emotional importance to their rightful owners. Her efforts spawned a movement across the western coast of North America to do the same. Some people even visited Japan to return items to their owners. This program focuses on the latest developments and considers the importance and significance of these efforts, looking at what was lost and what was saved.

SCK Girls are an all-girl band based in Kesennuma in Miyagi prefecture. They were brought together by Ken-ichi Abe, who worked for a local insurance firm. In October 2011, only seven months after the disaster, he placed an advertisement in the newspaper to form a youth band that might give cheer to people in the disaster-hit communities. Six local girls expressed interest. They provide their own choreography and perform in temporary housing estates set up for people who were made homeless by the disaster. Abe succumbed to cancer in the summer of 2013, leaving the band leader Rise Takahashi to manage the band's activities. This program follows Rise, who now organizes their events and looks at how the band has grown and matured.
