Shogo Matsuba

I have been in charge of mountain climbing projects for children for more than 10 years.

Since 2011, I have been the leader of the Kids Mountaineering Club for elementary school children and the Mountaineering Class for families, mainly in Nagano Prefecture. Currently, we hold about one event per month and more than 10 events every year to introduce the joy of mountains to many children. I also receive many requests from the government, such as support for school climbing trips, community centers, and the Matsumoto City Eco-School, and I would like to continue to make it my life's work to teach children about mountain climbing through various activities.
