Pasona Group is taking on the challenge of new job creation by attracting human resources to rural areas. The aim is to revitalize regional industry by bringing together people with diverse talents.
Regional Revitalization (Awaji)
Through the renovation of an old elementary school building, Nojima Scuola was opened in 2012 under the keywords of "food, farming, learning, and art." Located on Awaji Island, it is used for hosting a variety of events, serving as center for distributing information on local activities and a place for the local community to gather.
Operation of Awaji City Sunshine Hall and Shizuka Hall
The general operation of the halls is performed by artists and musicians who are graduates of Cococala Mura. They do everything from planning their own concerts, to managing rental of the halls, to performing facility maintenance. This enables local residents to enjoy high-quality art exhibitions and musical performances.
Cococala Mura was commissioned by Hyogo Prefecture as a human resource project for rural revitalization, through farming, art, and cultural activities.
