On July 4, 2008, the "21st Century Environment Exhibition," which supports the United Nations' Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014), opened at the Shibuya Tobu Hotel in Tokyo. Many guests attended the opening ceremony. Nguyen Thi Thu Ha, Japanese bureau chief of "The Voice of Vietnam," a Vietnamese state radio station, expressed her desire to inform the Vietnamese people about the SGI's environmental efforts through the radio.
