Hello, I’m Ishikawa, a member of Earth Day Tokyo executive
committee and in a wheelchair. Chiropractic neck manipulation I had 12 years
ago caused the cervical spine injury.
I decided to join the executive committee of Earth Day
Tokyo and have been a member for two years now to make Earth Day Tokyo be an
outdoor event that everyone including with disabilities like me can enjoy.
We, Earth Day Tokyo, aim to organize the outdoor event
for all like with disabilities, elderly people, children, parents, with pets,
LGBT, foreigners, and more based on the concept of SDGs (Sustainable
Development Goals) .
Not only the booths at EarthDay Tokyo, we also organize
the music live performances and live talks. People with disabilities on
hearing, vision, or walk have the rights to enjoy these as well as others, and
the right to access to the information*.
*Right to access to the information: Information has to
be provided equally to people with disabilities by, for example, sign language,
voice guidance, captions, etc.
