As part of its contribution to society, Panasonic works with municipalities and consumer groups throughout Japan to hold consumer education courses. In addition to courses whose themes are of great interest to consumers—“Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Home Appliances," "Dwelling Safety" (on equipment in residential buildings), "Tips on Storage," "Renovating," "Crime Prevention," and many others—the company offers educational courses on topics covering the occasional concerns and needs of customers. All these courses are enjoyable, easy-to-understand, and well-attended.
In response to increased awareness of the environment and the need to conserve electricity, Panasonic's Eco Solutions Company has offered "Eco Lighting Classrooms"—which involve LED lighting fixtures—and "Eco and Solar Power Generation Classrooms"—which teach how solar power works—in elementary schools throughout Japan. In fiscal 2017, around 14,000 pupils in 220 schools participated. Panasonic has also held the "Andon" (traditional lamp) craft workshop using LEDs some 290 times, with roughly 8,500 participants in this hands-on building workshop.
Panasonic provides information to consumers on its website about the safe and environmentally friendly use of household appliances. In April 2016, this information was reorganized as the "KADEN POCKET (Appliance Guide)" to make it even easier to understand.
