Meet Paro in Harrogate

Paro, the ‘therapeutic robot seal’, will make his debut in Britain at the JLGC stall at the LGA’s annual conference in Harrogate (30 June-2 July). One of several examples of best practice from Japanese local government being showcased at the stall, he is loaned to us from Toyama Prefectural Government (where he is built), having been put to use in Japan for those (particularly the elderly) who cannot take care of real animals or who live in places where pets are forbidden.
