We’re pleased to announce that Keibo Oiwa, the founder of the Sloth Club, Japan’s leading ‘Slow Life’ environmental group, joins us as our first Japanese 350 Messenger. 350 Organizer Claire Tsai and I met Keibo on the outskirts of Tokyo during a trip to Japan to build the 350 network – and reported on our experience in a blog post here.

Keibo’s words are a good reminder that as we rush to build a global movement, we also need to take time to slow down and remember what we’re fighting for. Thanks to Keibo and sloths across Japan and the world for joining the 350 team!
