Activities in Sapporo

leave a comment »

We are hoping to make constant exchanges and extend friendships with non-Japanese residents in Sapporo. According to the survey by International Plaza in Sapporo, qjuite many issues exsist among non-Japanese and we’d like to make some opportunites to solve some exsisting problems through discussions, meetings and exchanges.

This year, after the disaster, we did some hearings targeting some non-Japanese residents, including students. We found out that it is necessary to make closer contacts with the areas where those people live so that their neighbors notice them. At the same time we will have some study meetings in English for non-Japanese to learn more about earthquakes, disaster prevention and nulear power plants.

札幌在住の外国人との交流を通して、文化や習慣の違いを超えてお互いを理解することに寄与したい。札幌国際プラザの調査によれば、在札外国人はさまざまな課題を抱えているが、勉強会、交流会、討論会などを通して、課題解決の一助になれるようにしたい。

今年は、災害後に、学生も含めた在札外国人に聞き取り調査を行った。緊急時には、地域の人々が、その地域に外国人が暮らしていることを認識していることが大事だと感じた。今後さらに調査や話し合いを続けて、個々のケースでの課題の解決も図りたい。また、地震や災害防止、原発などについての知識が少ないこともわかったため、後期には在札外国人を対象に勉強会を開催する予定もある。
