Establishment of ordinances for building a child friendly city
We will establish ordinances and rules, and will develop strategies to uphold the rights of children based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to provide children with a variety of protection and support for their living and development.
Child Impact Assessment and Survey
We will put the interests of children first over anything when making decisions that affect children based on a child survey.
Measures for Child Safety
We will develop and implement policies for children to grow and feel protected in a safe environment. We will provide them with various opportunities to take part in social activities according to their abilities so that they can grow up as a responsible child and throughout their adolescence, and to express their opinions on what affects their lives.
And we will listen to their voices with the utmost interest and consideration.

We will establish a system to spread culture where the rights of children are respected, to conduct public campaigns, and to further protect the rights of children.
