This blog page is YUJI Earthman Official Platform in order to awake people’s consciousness & awareness for Peace & Protection Environment.
Since 2007 I -“YUJI EARTHMAN” have kept telling the people the importance of individual actions at own daily life – checking our habit, community system, country & world situation, and changing our lifestyle and give the impact through our individual actions to the people nearest us.
Nowadays main media such as TV, Newspaper, Radio, do not broadcast the truth, and important information which can make people remind our humanity, real way of life, and the way of coexistence. These media just enkindle our greed & desire for our privilege at our society through money, position, power.
Therefore through the blog page, I would like to spread real message and information for everybody in order to make everybody feel our humanity and real way of life – which we can live peacefully & sustainably – through sharing & transfer our stuff such as knowledge, experiences, skills, place, things, and helping each other as a family.
PEACE MESSENGER & ENVIRONMENTALIST

Born in 25th of September 1982
2001 ~2005 Keio Gijuku Shounan Hujisawa Policy Management
I studied and graduated from Keio University in Japan, majoring in Policy Management before going on to Korea where I studied Korean language and later entered Yonsei post-graduate school. However, my love of nature and environment led to reconsider my decision and chose to leave the graduate school to pursue a career protecting the earth.
I decided to become an activist spreading the word to people about the need to preserve the environment. Soon after my decision, I joined Earthwalker, Paul Coleman on his mission to help green the Beijing Olympic games
Since 2007 As Peace messenger – a special project called CELEBRATION EARTH – which is leading event of International day of peace – “The Culture of Peace Initiative”, designated by the United Nations as a Peace Messenger Initiative and the leading event of the 2009 International Day of Peace, I have been spreading the message of peace and environmental protection to the global community by walking and doing several kinds of activities such as organizing Peace Day events, the planting of trees, helping and giving hope to young generations especially orphans.
Since I started my actions, I walked 13,100 km, planting 5008 trees, visiting 800 schools and 250 orphanages in 20 different countries.
After the long walking mission from China to London, walking 12,500 km for a total of five years, planting 4060 trees, visiting 700 schools and 200 orphanages in 17 different countries, I have built institute called “Peace Week”.

EKOPA; local community program
Through our individual actions, reconnect local people, remake the community system and all together we try to look after the weak people at community -such as elderly people & children, and all together transfer the knowledge, experiences, skills, material, land, to make sustainable community and society as a one family sharing & helping each other.
Through various way of approaching the education at the local & global level of programs, we try to reconnect people & reform the way of society which can make peaceful atmosphere from smallest size of community “Family” where

We are convinced that It will make the sustainable way of society from local level, not only educational program but started to make the platform & facility, as final steps with local people, we called it -“EKOPIA”
(Ecological Utopia -where all can feel dignity and respected, and can live happily & peacefully as the one family)
