The Village SOS campaign, a £1.4m Big Lottery Fund funded initiative which supported a wide range of projects right across the UK has now ended.
On Monday 6 March 2017 ACRE hosted a delegation of 3 academics from Japan – Dr Shogo Kudo, Dr Yoshitaka Kumagai and Yoshitaka Ohara – whose combined expertise run the ‘Akita Age Lab’ project.
