Caring About Shared Spaces

I firmly believe that children who learn to appreciate, care for and truly share the spaces they occupy with others are far more likely to grow up respecting public shared spaces. There’s a strong correlation between the countries where public spaces are littered, dirtied and treated badly and the places where children grow up to believe it is somehow beneath them to clean or contribute to maintaining their environment.

Here’s the Japanese perspective.
