In addition to the fun event for children, the company also offers a technology experiential learning session towards achieving the SDGs
TOKYO, Sept. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — transcosmos inc. hereby announces that the company held an experiential event for the children of its employees at its MCM Center Naha on Sunday, August 20, 2023. The purpose of the event was to create an opportunity for children to learn about the company and the society where their parents work, and to foster parent-child communication. In addition, transcosmos also offered opportunities for children to learn new technologies, letting them go through the metaverse as well as 3DCG experiential learning sessions. Through bringing these opportunities to experience new technologies both to its employees and their children, transcosmos encourages working parents to strike a good balance between work and parenting, and also helps develop the next generation of young talent. Ultimately, transcosmos aims to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Goal 4 Quality Education and Goal 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth.

With the aim of increasing parent-children communication opportunities, transcosmos also carried out a workplace tour to let children understand what their parents do at work, thereby encouraging family conversations.
2. About experiential learning towards achieving the SDGs
The event was part of transcosmos’s initiative towards bringing a bright future for children through an experiential technology learning workshop for families.
Through this initiative, transcosmos not only explains about new technologies, but also communicates the fun and the potential they bring, and lets the children experience some of the technologies hands-on. By offering opportunities for children to expand their imagination and technology skills, transcosmos helps open up future possibilities for children.
For the experiential event at MCM Center Naha, transcosmos invited Masashi Umehara, the president of transcosmos’s service partner Lead U,LLC., and a popular 3DCG lecturer for the Avatar Creation Experience, 3DCG Lecture and the Metaverse Experience sessions. Through conveying not only the technology itself but also the fun the metaverse and 3DCG bring, as well as making children go through the process of creating the metaverse not as a game but as a professional work, transcosmos offered an opportunity for children to discover new possibilities.
In the metaverse world – the theme of the learning session – everyone can choose and be the one they wish to be through an avatar, which enables everyone to act going beyond their gender, age and challenges. In other words, the metaverse world lowers the bar for people who keep a distance from society and personal relationships due to diverse reasons including their physical or mental conditions to engage in social activities. transcosmos believes that this will lead to achieving the SDGs Goal 10 Reduce inequality within and among countries.
3. Future plans
In addition to the experiential learning sessions, transcosmos will continue to work on bringing a sustainable future society through planning and offering a diverse range of seminars, online school programs, and events in collaboration with its partners on the themes of a range of technologies that transcosmos promotes, in particular AI.
