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.
Visitors can learn about business activities being developed by Mitsubishi Corporation around the world via a large wall-mounted monitor, linked to a table-style touchscreen. Content selected on the touchscreen's world map is presented in greater detail via videos and other media on the monitor.
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.
Photo panels displayed on the walls around the staircase highlight activities being carried out to support recovery efforts in communities stricken by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
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.
The Forest Coaster is a giant wooden contraption, which runs for a total of 40 meters. Start a ball on its journey through the Forest Coaster and watch as various insights into the development of vibrant forests are revealed. Mitsubishi Corporation plants a tree for each ball that passes through the Forest Coaster, so visitors can help to make a greener planet while having fun with this fascinating contraption.
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.
Visitors gain a greater appreciation of our dynamic planet as they manipulate this digital globe with their hands while learning about climate change, typhoons and tsunamis, the movements of migratory birds and more.
The SMILE AFRICA PROJECT is led by Naoko Takahashi.
The project involves collecting shoes and sending them to children in Africa.
If you have shoes that are still usable but no longer fit or any other shoes to spare, please bring them along to MC FOREST.
