Anti-Nuclear Power Event, The Atomic Café Comes to Fuji Again This Year!

20-Jun-13

 

Since its inception in 1997, Fuji Rock has offered opportunities to consider how to switch to renewable energy sources and live with nature.

Fuji Rock supports the anti-nuclear weapon and power event "The Atomic Cafe", and has provided a part of the New Power Gear Field / Avalon Area to this movement, established in the 1980s, which works to create a society that stresses the use of renewable energies.

Fuji Rock's undertakings and support of Non-governmental organisations
Since being held for the first time in 1997, Fuji Rock Festival has provided NGO's with time on stage, to appeal to festival goers on issues like the environment, world peace and human rights, and has created the NGO Village where organisations can introduce themselves to the festival audience.
The NGO Village has become a place for speaking about, and supporting, global themes such as poverty and world peace, through donations and messages of support.
Lately, efforts have concentrated on global warming and energy, aiming to live in harmony with nature by converting to renewable energy sources and showing this through the use of solar power within the festival site.
