JWCU Calling for Action toward Denuclearization!
(July 28, 2011)
Without any effort against issues of nuclear energy, the Tohoku Region will not be reconstructed. As one of our efforts for denuclearization, JWCU is engaged in a nationwide signature campaign for denuclearization which aims to collect more than ten million signatures.

The campaign was launched to demand political leaders to bring about a shift in nuclear energy policy toward the elimination of nuclear energy. The rally will be held on September 19th, 2011.

We would appreciate if you could show your support by signing the petition.

JWCU Welcomed 13-18HAPPYZONE
(February 5-7, 2011)
JWCU hosted eight guests from 13-18HAPPYZONE (South Korea) in the child care forum.

The child care forum was held from February 5th to 6th in Tokyo, and we invited members from 13-18 HAPPYZONE. They had informative presentations about their activities. We learned a lot from their activities, especially study support for youth. Japanese audience was eager to learn about their study support programs for youth, because such programs are not common in after-school day-care programs in Japan.
It was a valuable opportunity to exchange opinions about differences in support for youth between Japan and South Korea.

Besides attending the forum, on February 7th, they visited two sites of ours to learn about child care in Japan, Higashi-Azabu Nursery and Pokke (center for children and parents) in Tokyo.

We hope that their trip was meaningful and that they would share with their colleagues what they experienced.

JWCU would like to thank all of members for coming to our forum, having wonderful presentations and visiting our sites.

We look forward to stronger partnership!
