Mottainai Grandma's World Exhibition - Part1

Mottainai Grandma's World Exhibition conveys the problem happening around the world and how it's connected with ourselves.

What is happening on earth? And why such things are happening and how those problems are connected with us?

Mottainai Grandma's World Report Exhibition part 1 tell about climate change, the problem of forest and animals disappearing, shortage of food and water, war, child labor, poverty and disparity through the stories of the children in the world and how those problems on earth is connected to our daily life.

These problems would not occur if we have considered life as the first priority. I have compiled the problem and connection with the word "Mottainai" which conveys the meaning of how precious life is, and through messages of Mottainai Grandma.

How can we live happily in peace? Let's think together with Mottainai Grandma. (Mariko Shinju)

Message from the author

"Mottainai" conveys the thoughtful feeling, sharing mindset and respectful heart. It means to respect what the other people takes it important just as importantly as what you care about, rather than feeling that only you are right.

Don't be selfish, don't just care about yourself, have a sharing heart.

I believe Mottainai Grandma is a grandmother who conveys the message which is needed in this era, I believe that the world will be peaceful if we have a heart of "Mottainai".
