* ■About the pavilion “PASONA NATUREVERSE” that Pasona Group will exhibit at the Osaka/Kansai Expo *
▲”PASONA NATUREVERSE” exterior image
* [Concept] *
Pasona Group’s job is to “make the most of people.”
We aim to create a society where everyone can be healthy and actively participate.
* “Thank you for life. ”*
All people around the world, from children to the elderly,
I want to create a world that respects life and is filled with gratitude for life!
Our society is part of the natural world, and humans are also dependent on nature.
However, at some point, we take it for granted,
Perhaps we have forgotten to be grateful.
The rich blessings that nature gives us humans,
And we can say “Thank you” to each other for being alive now. I want to create a new world where “thank you” resonates and leave it to the next generation.
We hope that many people from all over the world will visit our pavilion. Together, we will create a world called “NATUREVERSE
(Nature×Universe)” where “thank you” resonates.
I want you to be the creator of the future. That is Pasona Group’s wish.
