The Japanese Forest Society bestows an award to Dr. Mariko Inoue of FFPRI.

Mariko has led the study of forest education in Japan. She has systematically and theoretically reviewed vocational, professional, and environmental education for the general public including children. She argues that more practical applications for a sustainable society should be taken into consideration and in addition launched some forest education practices for the general public.

Dr. Inoue is a former Deputy Coordinator of IUFRO Research Group 6.09.00 - Forest Education and, through IUFRO, raised awareness for forest education in Japan to the international community.
