Overview

We define an "inclusive society" as a society where people can feel happy and lively, transcending differences such as gender, nationality, age, disability, and sexual orientation, and accepting various positions and values. With the aim of realizing such a society, we conduct enlightenment activities such as symposiums and other educational programs for the general public.

Symposium: Barriers to Realizing a Diverse Society in Japan – Globalization of the Heart (Tokyo)
In recent years, the number of non-Japanese people living in Japan has continued to grow, reaching 2.66 million to become more than 2% of the overall population for the first time. Labor shortages will become a reality in Japan through the steadily progressing population decline, and expectations for non-Japanese workers are increasing. We pursued the topics of the current situation of a multicultural symbiotic & diverse society in Japan and the emotional barriers from a Japanese mentality, listening to experts about what we ought to do to increase the globalization of our hearts.
