On October 16, 2022 (Sunday), a seminar by Associate Professor Chie Katakami, Department of Business Administration Faculty of Economics, Teikyo University, was held at Showa Denko Dome Oita (Oita City, Oita Prefecture) at the Meiji Yasuda Life J2 League Section 41 "Oita Trinita." We exhibited the SDGs booth at the match against Montedio Yamagata. This booth was created with the cooperation of Professor Jun Iwasaki of the Faculty of Department of Economics. Booth ~ Row and connect and push! Aim for Oita's roaring king! ~"The following three projects were held.

1. Let's pedal a bicycle and light up the Instagram spot

Raise awareness of power saving and environmental issues by raising awareness of the importance of electricity through bicycle power generation
Visitors are asked to pedal a bicycle attached to a power generator, and the electricity generated lights up a tape light connected to it. The tape light is connected to the Instagram spot attached to the booth, and the letters "Go! Torinita!" and the huge shell of Oita Trinita's mascot character "Kneetan", handmade by students, are illuminated by bicycle power generation. Visitors can enjoy taking pictures as a “Narikiri Knee-tan” wearing a huge Knee-tan shell.

2. Paddle a bicycle and experience the wonder of a professional soccer player

Leading to understanding of soccer and respect for players / Eliminate lack of exercise by pedaling a bicycle
According to the tracking data for the 2020-2021 series published by the J League, Oita Trinita's average mileage per game is about 120km. Challengers are asked to pedal for about 3 minutes per person, and by connecting to the next person and finally aiming for 120 km, they can experience how intense the athlete's amount of exercise is.

3. Ride a bicycle and get promotional goods

Aiming to improve player recognition and acquire new fans / Aiming for further spreading effects on SNS
Presenting popular acrylic cards as promotional goods to visitors who challenge bicycle power generation. Using an acrylic card, you can have a push experience by photographing the push player at the photo studio where the photos of all Oita Trinita players are displayed.

About 120 people participated on the day, and the booth was very busy. This event achieved SDGs 3, 7, 12, and 13, and provided an opportunity for Oita Trinita supporters and fans to think about the SDGs and learn about their activities.
