The TABUNKA SOCIAL COMMUNICATION programme is an Educational Action Research programme created in 2007 in the Aichi Prefecture, Japan. It aims at promoting, and studying, educational activities for Japanese and non-Japanese in the central region of Japan.
The Japanese society is presently confronted with various changes by huge globalization and 'borderlessness' in the world. People of many nationalities are living in Aichi because of global industrial fluidity. And the number of them are increasing year by year.
We think seriously about the Japanese social and cultural transfiguration that will come in the 21st century. A "multicultural Japan" is a necessity and work for our future stability and community development through educational activities is our main contribution into this process.
In the context of the programme we understand "Social Communication" as a way to share information and knowledge that can be perceived, transmitted and understood, and the impact those ways will have on different cultures living in a society. We see social communication as the departing concept to promote relevant lifelong learning in a multicultural environment like today's Japan.
