Growing and Learning Through Panasonic Center Tokyo
The Olympic and Paralympic Games Showcase project team has worked tirelessly since 2008 to establish the center as a lasting legacy covering a wide assortment of SDG-related topics, including global sustainability, diversity, and inclusion. Realizing that young people possess a surprisingly stark sense of social issues, the team wanted to create a space where they could come together to freely communicate and forge a brighter future.
Working with the same cohort of children to design the exhibitions and spread the word, the team watched as they absorbed information to grow into high schoolers with a deep, worldly knowledge keen to actively shape society. Hearing fond recollections of their childhood experiences at the center and how it contributed to their success and ambition has made all the effort worthwhile.
