The Advantest Group participated in the event of the “Tree-Planting Day in the Green Corridor with Singing Birds” held at Hibiki-cho, Wakamatsu-ku, Kitakyushu-shi, on March 24th.
This was an environmental protection project hosted by the city of Kitakyushu and local NPOs. The objectives of the project were to plant trees on the Hibikinada reclaimed land and to create a green corridor with singing birds so that the citizens can relax and enjoy themselves in lush greenery.
The total of 25 volunteers, including the Advantest Group's employees and their families, participated in the Tree-Planting Day and planted approximately 600 trees. There were nearly 1,500 people participated in the entire tree-planting activities, and they planted as many as 13,000 trees.
One of the participants and his family said, “It was a great opportunity for me and my family to learn about the environment,” and “I hope this will grow and become a forest one day and a lot of birds will fly over here.”
The Advantest Group will continue to be part of the activities which will contribute to our society, our community and the global environment in the future.
