Next generation development and support activities
Organizing environmental education through on-site lectures
The PPIH Group, which aims to strengthen dialogue with local communities, conducts on-site lectures for children. In areas where UNY stores are located, we visit elementary schools, children's halls, and other facilities where children can learn about and experience environmental issues, and introduce the environmental activities conducted at the stores in a lecture on the theme of "SDGs through Earth-friendly Shopping.
We try to take people's interest in environmental issues while having fun through familiar "shopping" activities such as the know-how of the recycling system, games to find environmental labels using stationeries, and how to make eco-bags using furoshiki.
Also, by having the people share what they have learned with their friends and family members, the people will be contributing to creating an opportunity for them to be more eco-conscious.
Joint project on aquarium maintenance
PPIH Group stores are equipped with large water tanks where customers can view tropical fish from Palau free of charge, which provides enjoyment and healing to customers.
The maintenance of this water tank is also an educational opportunity for students studying marine life ecology, in cooperation with TCA Tokyo ECO College for the Animals as a "Joint Tank Maintenance Project".
We strive to maintain a clean and comfortable water tank environment and feed the fishes, while also contributing to the development of the next generation.
Support for the "National Children's Essay Contest on Disaster Prevention"
In order to support disaster prevention education for children, the PPIH Group has been sponsoring the "National Children's Essay Contest on Disaster Prevention" since 2020.
The purpose of this contest is to encourage children to discuss disaster prevention with their families and friends on a daily basis, so that they can take action to protect their own lives in the event of a natural disaster.
