On June 29, the facility director of the frontier-Nakatsu, together with the members of the Nakatsu Branch of the Oita Prefecture Association of Small Business Entrepreneurs, went to visit "the Minami Yoshitomi After School Children's Club", which opened in March this year in Kouge Town, located across the Yamakuni River from Frontier Nakatsu.
According to a staff member of the Child Rearing Support Section and Child Rearing Future Division, Jomo Town Office, who showed us around, "this children's club aims to be a safe and comfortable place for children and their families to use". I was told.
And according to the architects who were with us, not only was the design done by NAP Architects (represented by Hiroshi Nakamura), but also the craftsmanship of the builders was simply amazing.
It was a space where "children first" was evident everywhere.

Report on the start of the production of [Food Waste Kieero], and Frontier Nakatsu's approach to the SDGs
Recently, we often hear the words "SDGs" and see the colorful logo like donut-shaped.
SDGs is an abbreviation for "Sustainable Development Goals".
According to the website of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the SDGs is explained below…
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are international goals for a sustainable and better world by 2030, which were adopted in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the United Nations Summit in September 2015 as the successor to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) formulated in 2001.
The SDGs consist of 17 goals and 169 targets, and pledge to "leave no one behind" on the Earth. The SDGs are universal, not only for developing countries but also for developed countries themselves, and Japan is actively working on them.
Now, I would like to say that Frontier Nakatsu has started to produce "Food Waste Kieero"
at the request of Nakatsu City Environmental Policy Division.
Not only in Nakatsu City, but also on a global scale, the garbage problem is becoming more serious, and we accepted this request because we think it is one of the effective ways to "leave no one behind" on the earth.
Although this is a small initiative by a small utility, we feel the great responsibility and are working hard as a team.
For more information on the SDGs, please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan.

In addition, it seems that they are currently recruiting monitors for "Food Waste Kieero". The link is also attached below.
