Peace as a Life's Work: NPO Education Director - Yamaguchi Haruki
A year into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, with the specter of global war a constant presence, young people in Japan are pursuing new ways to promote peace. Hiroshima-born Yamaguchi Haruki directs peace education initiatives for an NPO. Her team of young staff run guided tours and online programs aimed at participants in Japan and overseas. As first-hand memories of the atomic bomb gradually fade, we follow a new generation striving to keep the flame of peace alive.
