Project Summary

This project aims to propose a Child Care Commons by clarifying the requirements for a system that allows diverse people to be involved in “child-rearing” flexibly and responsibly. We propose a system where everyone in society can voluntarily help raise children through the CCC.This system will increase people’s peace of mind and vitality in three positions: parents (caregivers), children being cared for, and non-relatives participating in child-rearing. We aim to create a society where each person feels fulfilled, and a diverse range of people can play an active role.
