From Nithin's website (http://www.nithincoca.com/)
For the next meetup, we will welcome a guest speaker, Nithin Coca (http://www.nithincoca.com/), from the U.S.
He is a freelance writer and a social activist. He will talk about his experiences -- deforestation and supply chain issues he saw in Indonesia and Malaysia.
And we will discuss the trade and cultural connections between Japan and southeast Asia, and what Japan and Japanese consumers can do to help prevent deforestation there.
Anyone interested in this topic? Jump in, listen to his stories, and exchange ideas each other :D
