I am very thrilled that our project, greenz global turned one year old. It was such a long and winding road to establish this project at first, but, since we started this media a year ago, we’ve been so overwhelmed by numerous reactions and supports from you all.
One of the most impressive things during this greenz global project was the time when “Papamama” article was picked by GOOD HQ. Though “Hikarigaoka Share-house Project” was the first one picked by GOOD HQ, I felt much more thrills then, because every reactions from oversea countries were hyper! I would say that was a kind of very ecstatic moment.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the supporters, our interns, founding members and of course, our readers. On this very special day, we publish a special post features comments from our community members, and our heart-pounding future plans.
With much love and mercy,
From: Kota Suzuki / Chief Editor of greenz global

greenz global always goes beyond my expectation, and I’ve been having thrilling moments. Thanks guys! I do honestly think this project expands future and possibilities of our greenz community. But you’re still so young, just a year. I am very looking forward to seeing the landscape which will come in sight when it turns 10 years old!
