Brief Description of Research
■Evaluation of ESD programs
I’m developing the evaluation method for short-term non-formal education programs provided by businesses or NGO from the perspective of the expected learning capabilities. My evaluation framework was based on existing studies about environmental literacy and key competence in sustainability. I’m trying to improve the evaluation method through actual practices on several education programs.

■Research of factors influencing civic action for the environment and ESD program design
The main target of Japanese environmental education has been the promotion of individual pro-environmental behaviors in daily life, such as separating trash, saving energy and so on. My study targets the promotion of collective behaviors collaborating with stakeholders (e.g. Participating local activities to solve regional environmental problems, joining environmental organizations). I’m trying to figure out the determinants of these behaviors through the statistical analysis of questionnaire survey, and design ESD which can encourage collaborative collective behaviors.

■Design and evaluation of capacity development in the field of disaster waste management
I’m developing the capacity development for municipal employees in the field of disaster waste management. Knowledge gotten through the past training design, support, and evaluation is compiled the guidebook.
