BEE Japan (Bicycle for Everyone's Earth) is a group of people from Japan and abroad that promotes environmental awareness and ecological lifestyles in Japan. The group's main event is an annual 2 month bicycle ride, beginning in August, from the northernmost island of Japan (Hokkaidō) to the southern most (Kyūshū, or occasionally Okinawa). The route changes every year, and generally covers 2,500 to 3,500 kilometers. Each year has a different coordinator and team of riders, and a different environmental focus.
The BEE ride uses both direct action and education to promote environmental awareness and ecological lifestyles.
Before, after, and (mainly) during the annual ride, BEE members educate local people on environmental issues in a variety of ways. These include:
Activities aim to create a deep awareness in participants of the extent to which our daily lives effect the ecosystems in which we live. Many topics are covered, but the focus is on bio-interconnectivity, forest destruction, over consumption, and renewable energy sources (human, wind, and solar).
