You can actually take part on tours that offer you the opportunity to experience social issues on site.
We have more than 100 different themes in our tours, from sex education to defense.
More than 3000 people had been taken to the social issues sites.
While taking part on the tours, some activities such as having a dialogue with different parties related with the issues, making research on the latest trends in the field or an exchange of opinions amongst the participants will make them have a deeper understanding of the issues.
Recently Ridilover has expanded its partnership with different NPO organizations, building a mechanism that can back up the majority of the tour sales as NPO's operating funds.

People feelings were that being able to talk directly with the ones affected by the issues was the best part and knowing more that their own comfort area, finding a very attractive community beyond the limits imposed by the city and the working place. I also wanted to participate in this tour, and knowing the "new way" of working some companies were showing.

It was an opportunity to know about the "Mixed industrial-living settlement issues". I felt the streets in my own skin at the visit to the 3 factories in the city. The real talk and the craftsmanship of the second generation craftsmen was a good parenthesis. Listening to what a senior member of society had to say was so amazing, it made me feel as having different ways of communicating for solving social issues.

We developed a new media,
for making social issues more visible.
Worried about our day-to-day life.
Connecting NPOs and entrepreneurs with people that may want to get informed in a more direct way.
"TRAPRO" is an open media for anyone who wants to get involved, is a platform that can help to spread information through a wide variety of people.
If you feel like us, why don't you try to spread the message through "TRAPRO" too?
Getting from a student experience to a better society, that would be a great asset.
For this purpose we developed study tours aimed at scholars as "school trips" in which they can learn how to interact in a proactive way with society as junior high and high school students will support the training plan themselves.
By a camp during 2 nights and 3 days, students challenge the regional issues and speak directly with intermediaries and experts in a way teenagers usually don't have the chance to do so. They will also gain some skills as the ability to discuss, and thinking in a more rational and critical way.
For more details on the program, please feel free to ask.
I didn't like to communicate in public, so I was worried about it at that moment, but the people at Ridilover showed me how. I could say I loved it. Thanks to the trip I could get rid of the poor knowledge I had.
We developed a conference event,
, or Ridilover's Social Issue Conference.
People participating try to tackle social issues as their business. Participants from different areas meet, connecting those more active with the ones that are having a through time, joining forces to help solving the different issues around Japan. That is why NPO members and social entrepreneurs participate in R-SIC.
Through this conference more people that aim to solve social issues, having a more social or business like potential, get together to get a bigger impact on society in a nearby future.
From the business point of view, the so-called "social entrepreneurs" can help solving social issues, or at least that's their intention. That's why when I decided to join R-SIC I thought it was an "extravagant conference".
As a matter of fact, I was surprised by the quality of the lectures even one person on stage could do.
Not only listening to the lectures, but the discussions with all sorts of people of different ages. The close distance between speakers and participants made me happy.
In Ridilover, we also think that working to strengthen partnerships with private companies is a part of solving social issues.
Through tours and training programs we developed, participants feel social issues which they have no chance of touching in day-to-day business as their own, and learn a variety of techniques to solve problems. That enables them to get a new point of view.
We provide training programs through which participants get a broader point of view to think as well as they improve their daily business.
