Child-friendly community development (CFCI)
Town Planning Youth Involvement
(Right to participate in community development for townspeople under the age of 20)
Article 11 Young people and children under the age of 20 are entitled to participate in town development suitable for their age.
Adolescents and children under the age of 20 also need a form of participation according to their age, and their opinions are an important asset of the town. We believe that the right of such children to participate should be guaranteed. The results of community development by adults will be immediately enjoyed by children.
On the other hand, while lowering the age at which children are subject to punishment, the current situation is that they are not seeking their political participation. Instead of giving priority to punishment, I think that Japan needs a system in which adults listen to children's voices seriously and reflect them in community development. It is important that children's participation is not formal (superficial) or temporary participation, but is constantly repeated in daily life and educational settings, and we must promote the creation of a mechanism for that purpose. ..
