Session
Information
This session will awaken the role and calling of young leaders for the sustainable future of the Earth and the Korean Peninsula and check the Korean Peninsula"s challenges toward ecological civilization. Ecological civilization refers to the social system and attitude of life that can coexist with earth"s life beyond the human system that has exploited the planet so far. Despite concerns over the biosphere"s extinction due to the unprecedented climate crisis, each country"s interests and practice are still insufficient. This session introduces the current status of achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on the climate crisis, equality, and sustainability. It also discusses the Korean version of the Green New Deal"s achievement and future vision from a young leaders" perspective. This session is not a forum for professional discussion but a platform for vision sharing and mutual understanding. As Professor John Cobb pointed out, the global environment continued to deteriorate; now, we have two critical questions. (1) how much will be left, and (2) can we build something more sustainable in the ruins?" Young leaders who want to find better answers for the public good of humankind will meet each other in this session to discuss their future visions for a sustainable Korean Peninsula.
