Title :What in Okinawa about Okinawan Environmental Problems? : An Ouline of the Okinawa Cross-Cultural Environmental Experiences
Authors :Yamashiro, Shin
Issue Date :2005
Abstract :As we all may agree, environmental issues do not stand by themselves; they are not merely about preservation and conservation of the physical environment and animals living somewhere. They are also social and cultural problems. My main goal is to analyze the process thorough which "Okinawan environmental problems" have become recognized as "Okinawan" problems. By explaining the social, cultural, and economic situation in postwar Okinawa, I will attempt to delineate some of the essential elements that constitute people's idea of "environmental problems" and show some of the early environmetnal problems that across during 1970s as an example of the cross-cultural experience of Okinawa. I will conclude that Okinawan environmental problems were created through cross-cultural interaction between Okinawa and the U.S. military.
