MUJI Konandai birds is one of the biggest MUJI stores located in Yokohama. Circular Yokohama had invited to its talk show on June 5th.
The main topic was the product lifetime extension.

PBL Workshop with KAMAN and Kanagawa University
Kanagawa University and Circular Yokohama have been cooperating to provide circular economy education since 2021.
The first collaboration in 2022 was a problem-based learning (PBL) workshop on June 29th at the Kanagawa University Minato Mirai campus.
KAMAN Inc., the company that produces the reusable packaging circulation “Megloo,” shared with us several problems they are facing.
Eleven students and members of KAMAN and Circular Yokohama had a discussion to find reasonable solutions.
At the end of the workshop, Shingo, the CEO of KAMAN, said, “Every student has different and unique perspectives, which are very different from what usually comes up to my mind. I want to pick up their ideas to make our circular project more valuable.”
