Kaori Brand | TEDxTokyo 2011
Kaori Brand says we should realize that we can’t dictate to nature, and that nature in fact rules our days; witness the recent Tohoku disaster and its crushing impact on the region’s people. Kaori discovered this truth after years of interviewing farmers, foresters and fishers for documentaries about satoyama and satoumi—meaning traditional systems of land and coastal management—for the United Nations University Media Centre in Tokyo.
Kaori is one of the main producers of Our World 2.0, the award-winning UNU bilingual webzine that highlights solutions to global challenges such as climate change, food security, biodiversity loss and peak oil. She was a director and producer on the UNU documentary “The Wisdom Years”, which explores aging in Japan and its effects on society, and also worked as an assistant producer on the English-language version of “Pokémon”, the popular anime series.
