A word from Kobayashi Pharmaceutical :
“Thank you very much for conducting this workshop. The catchy approach of experiencing the challenging theme of biodiversity through a card game allowed members from the participating departments to better grasp the concept. It seems that they not only deepened their understanding but also recognized the importance of biodiversity. This workshop was highly beneficial and would like to use it as a starting point to continue our internal discussions on the topic.”
