In this program, participants learned and practiced the EBA method, which consists of Data Collection, Data Analyzation, Data Visualization, and Storytelling, through exploring the question:
    • In the digital era, how can we revitalize Minamata City? Provide proposals considering the current situation in Minamata City.  or,
    • How could the Minamata disease incident have been avoided if modern technology had been available? What should we do now to apply the lessons learned?
This time the field: Minamata city, located in Kyushu island, southern part of Japan. The city is known for Minamata disease, which is caused by mercury pollution from a chemical factory in 1950’s. It is the first disease caused by food chain due to environmental pollution.
Participants learned the overview of the area and, afterward, engaged in discussions with stakeholders for a deeper investigation of the issues faced by the local community. Then, propose possible solutions for sustainable development in Minamata city.

Final Outcomes will be shared at the final presentation (with EBA UM 2023 participants) from 18:00 (UTC+9),  27 September 2023.
