On Saturday, December 17, the "Keio University Hiyoshi Children's Cafeteria" was held for the first time, on Hiyoshi Campus. As one of the efforts to achieve the SDGs in Keio University, this event was designed to invite local children to the campus and provide them the opportunity to have fun interacting with Keio students in order to deepen relations between the university and the surrounding community. This event was planned and run by the student group "Keio Slow Food Club" with the cooperation of "Green's Marche," a student cafeteria on Hiyoshi Campus.
The theme for this event was "What does it mean to eat? Thinking about it over curry with Keio students!" Through this, participants enjoyed activities with Keio students by eating together with them and taking part in quiz games designed to deepen their understanding of food and the SDGs. Approximately 40 elementary students from the five surrounding elementary schools around Hiyoshi Campus participated in the event, and there they spent a lively and cheerful time together.
Keio University aims to continue similar efforts in the future in order to further contribute to the local community.
