[Registration Closed] The 80th Breakfast Meeting –Providing Support for Children-Rearing in the Reiwa Era as a Society: Which Value Changes Does Society Require? (September 11, 2019)

[Registration Closed] The 80th Breakfast Meeting –Providing Support for Children-Rearing in the Reiwa Era as a Society: Which Value Changes Does Society Require? (September 11, 2019)

In recent years, HGPI has pursued women’s health as one of its priority agendas, and to that end we have conducted surveys and drafted proposals related to the topic. Our survey research on working women has highlighted the importance of health management for women and revealed challenges related to child-rearing.
Japan leads the world in demographic change caused by aging and a low birthrate, and the number of single-person households or households consisting of nuclear families is expected to increase. While demographics and family structures are continuously changing and diversifying, women are finding more opportunities to participate in society and may face even greater expectations with regard to social participation in the future. These circumstances mean it is becoming impossible for people to balance work and child-rearing only through efforts in the home. Along with changes in systems and frameworks, we believe it will necessary for social values to change to enable better understanding and support from various organizations such as governments, companies, and local communities.

For the 80th breakfast meeting, we have invited Mr. Hiroki Komazaki, who is working to support the futures of children and the people raising them through social reform to improve sick child care, plenary adoption, and issues related to child poverty. Together with everyone in the audience, we will deepen our understanding of the current issues facing these fields and their future outlook.
