Hi, I'm Joy (jjwalsh) - thanks for visiting my page
I've lived and worked in Japan for many years as a teacher, editor, consultant and now my focus during the coronavirus is promoting the good work of people around Japan (and abroad focused on Japan) to help encourage the great work they do while sparking new ideas and inspiring an audience tuning in from around the world.

The talkshow series started at the end of April to pull myself forward with a positive, proactive project to network and learn, but also to share insights and content I hope others find interesting. The series is called #seekingsustainabilitylive and is available live every weekday at 9am or 5pm Japan time. It has been described as "fun", "well-researched" and "inspirational" by viewers.

Topics in the series: Japanese culture, sustainable travel, lifestyle + fashion hacks, Akiya home reuse + reform, organic farming, artisans, heritage, folklore and sustainable innovation are common themes of the talks.
