SHIMA is an outreach project that aims to educate high school students about the sustainability of island ecosystems and cultures.

The concept of SHIMA is based on these interrelated pillars: "science education outreach activities", "engagement between OIST scientists and neighboring communities", and "understanding sustainable island ecosystems and cultures". It is a workshop for high school students addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and island sustainability.
