Banch Garage Program

The team, called "Plunger", aims to solve gender issues in relation to public toilets and was chosen to be included in the "100BANCH GARAGE Program". With the ward-chief of Shibuya as a mentor, they plan to make gender-free toilets a reality and also promote awareness of the importance of sustainable development goals.

One of the students was selected as a high school student representative from Japan for the public-private collaboration project "Tobitate! Study Abroad JAPAN" developed by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. Last year, she received a full scholarship and studied abroad in the United States researching gender issues concerning public toilets. That experience has proven to be invaluable with this project.

"100BANCH" is a program that aims to support "100 projects to create the next 100 years" The program is sponsored and assisted by the Panasonic and Loftwork companies.
