MC FOREST hosts various seminars and other events in cooperation with researchers and NGOs/NPOs that are tackling environmental and social issues, as well as employees.
A timeline displayed on the wall provides an overview of Mitsubishi Corporation's history, from the company's founding through to modern times. Visitors can learn more about particular events by holding the tablet PCs provided up to the wall.
The stairway features a display of panels explaining MC's DREAM AS ONE parasports project and introducing its own parasports athletes.
A 120-inch wall-mounted display provides visitors with an overview of the various volunteer activities supported by Mitsubishi Corporation, including afforestation projects, both in Japan and around the world, and the Friendship Camp for Mothers and Children.
Visitors can have a go in special wheelchairs designed for sports like boccia ball and rugby.
Through its Global Coral Reef Conservation Project, Mitsubishi Corporation is supporting research on coral reefs in the Seychelles, Australia and Okinawa, Japan. At MC FOREST, visitors have the rare opportunity to observe a live coral ecosystem.
The digital earth “Sphere” shows visitors real-time information on the various phenomena affecting our planet, including global warming, typhoons, the migration patterns of marine life and birds, and so on.
Through its Fukunowa Project, MC will sell your donated clothing to recycling companies and thrift stores. It will then donate the proceeds from those sales to parasports bodies and athletes. The aims of this project are both to support parasports and encourage more people to reuse clothing. Most of the clothing collected is sent to Malaysia to be sold in second-hand markets overseas. Some events are also held to resell the clothes here in Japan (such as flea markets that have been arranged and held through the project).
Donations of all types of clothing are welcome, provided that they are in acceptable condition (please see below). All proceeds from their resale shall be donated to the Fukunowa Project.
