Children will be able to experience the system used in actual business operations by programming a simple
program on JIT to learn about the JAL Group’s various efforts to achieve virtually zero CO2 emissions by 2050.
This is a next generation educational program that utilizes IT knowledge and  technology to nurture children's
logical thinking skills by using programming to think about things in an orderly fashion and solve problems
through trial and error, while also allowing them to feel a connection with society.

【Future plans】

・July 6(TUE): The program will be offered at Shibaura Elementary School in Minato Ward, Tokyo.
・We will expand the program to other elementary schools that have requested it, and consider making the
    program available online.

Through its corporate activities, the JAL Group will continue to work toward the achievement of the SDGs by
staying close to the issues facing society and local communities.
