On-site Classes Go Online in Capcom’s Educational Support Activities!
– Capcom aims to support requests from remote areas of Japan with online classes –
Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that its On-site Classes, one of the company’s Educational Support Activities that functions as a part of its ongoing ESG efforts, will be made available in an online format beginning in July of this year.
Capcom has been proactively holding Company Visits and On-site Classes for elementary and middle school students since 2005 in order to promote the healthy development of children and students, the understanding of games in society, as well as contribute to sustainable economic growth and social order. In the 15 years since this began, Capcom has held these Educational Support Activities across Japan, welcoming a total of 3,355 students to its offices during 403 Company Visits, and providing instruction to a total of 15,726 students during 174 On-site Classes.
The new online version of Capcom’s On-site Classes were created in order to more flexibly respond to requests for classes from a wider area, based on both ongoing inquiries from educators for an online version, and on the large-scale changes to everyday life brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting with an online class at Shimada City Kawane Junior High School scheduled for Wednesday, June 30, Capcom plans to deliver online classes to 15 schools per year and is taking requests from elementary and middle schools from across Japan.
Under its philosophy of being a Creator of Entertainment Culture that Stimulates Your Senses, Capcom will work to address climate change and other issues facing society while aiming for sustainable growth through establishing a relationship of trust with its stakeholders and harmony with the environment.
