Dankook University (DKU) was awarded the Governor's Award by Gyeonggi Province at a contest exhibit supervised by the Gyeonggi Association for Green Campus Initiative. DKU, led by 'Fir Dream' team and other volunteers, initiated a few steps, such as putting up banners and posters, and conducting campaigns to encourage students to participate in initiatives relating to our Green Campus.
They placed ten recycle bins within the campus and conducted a campaign for reducing leftover food at the school cafeteria. As a result, the amount of leftover food actually decreased from around 372 kg to 147 kg. They also conducted a few more campaigns, such as using recycled and reusable paper, and a power-saving campaign, to reduce the carbon emission rate.
"All we did were small things that we could easily do in our lives, but we tend to ignore them," said Si-Ne Choi of 'Fir Dream' team. "We also appreciate students who have shown their interest in the project."
Jae-Ho Kim, head of student support affairs, stated that he introduced this project to participate with our students as an effort to reduce carbon emissions nationwide. He hopes that this will lead an opportunity for 'Green Campus' to proliferate to the rest of society.
