[1st AIRA Furusato Challenger]
At the Aira Community Center in the morning of Saturday, September 17, 2nd year of Reiwa, by carrying out various activities by groups of different ages, we cultivate cooperation, independence and positivity, and pride and attachment to our hometown. The AIRA Furusato Challenger was held in collaboration with the Social Education Division with the aim of training strong youth leaders who will be responsible for the future of Aira City.
This time, the first time, HUG (evacuation center management game) for 31 elementary school students in the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades, led by Aira City Junior Leaders (junior high and high school students) who took the Aira City Junior Leader Development Project the other day. Was carried out. The children were very interested in it, and they were serious about HUG training.
In Japan, which is a disaster-prone country, disaster prevention education from young people is indispensable, and the development of regional leaders who do not rely on the public based on Satsuma's unique intergenerational mutual assistance system is the future activities for disaster prevention and disasters. We believe that it will help, so I would like to continue expanding the framework of cooperation and further broadening disaster prevention education.
