The Kids School in Hawaii [0 min 08 sec]
Panasonic organizes education programs for the next generation, the Kids School, across the world. This time it was held in Hawaii. As part of the Eco Learning Program, the children learned about creating and saving energy in the classroom, and then built their own model hybrid cars. The children learned about solar power generation by witnessing the cars they had just built run on sunlight. And then they visited Hawaii's World Heritage site, the Kilauea volcano, and enjoyed the beautiful nature while learning about the importance of protecting World Heritage sites and the environment.

Mr. Wang, who is in charge of the installation of Panasonic's solar panels in Hawaii, says that these CSR activities are important to becoming a trusted company in the region. You can see what efforts Panasonic is making to be accepted by the regional community and creating future fans that understand Panasonic's activities.
At the end of the video report, Megumi, who taught the children in the Kids School told the children, "You are the one who is going to face the most severe climate change, and you are the one who is going to face the shortage of natural resource. However, you are the one who can make the difference in the future, not us, but you are the one." I think this represents the philosophy of the Kids School. Please take a look for yourself.
