“Coal and micro-particle pollution in Korea and northeast Asia”

Time:  5-7 PM

August 20 (Saturday)

This series of seminars introduces critical issues for the environment in Korea and in East Asia for all concerned citizens.  Korea is increasingly benchmarked by developing nations so that its policies and standards for environmental protection have far broader impact throughout the region. Moreover, environmental regulations have been much relaxed over the last decade with grave impact on air quality and water quality.

Seminars start with a short introduction of the topic followed by an open discussion. Interpretation for English and Korean will be available.

Please RSVP if you wish to attend the seminar series to: alahan@kfem.or.kr.

Visiting speakers:

Benjamin J. Butler  is an English Futurist, dividing his time between Asia and the West. He attended King’s College, London’s School of Law, and graduated in Economics and Japanese at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London in the 1990s. He is known for his ability to forecast cycles or paradigm shifts in financial markets, society, technology and geo-politics. He is a trusted sounding board for many investors, companies and financial institutions.   Benjamin is Founder of the Emerging Future Institute, writes the International Column for Dow Theory Letters, and is CEO of Creativity Consultancy Apotheosis Consulting. He leverages off a unique array of experiences and roles including fund manager, stockbroker, venture capitalist, and innovation consultant, seeing himself as an observer of human behavior and decision-making.  He spent a number of years travelling around the world meeting leading visionaries, with the goal of discerning states of mind that lead to insight. He believes that the harnessing of collective intelligence will result in a new form of Enlightenment.

Philip Franses  is a Senior Lecturer in Holistic the Science Faculty of Schumacher College  (Devon, UK) as a “teacher of complexity.”   Philip studied mathematics at New College Oxford from 1976 to 1980. Academia’s dull explanation of the world inspired Philip on a counter-journey into the depths of experience, travelling and a re-sensitisation to quality. In 2005, after a fifteen-year career designing intelligent software, culminating in a program now used in The Netherlands by all Dutch courts, Philip had a chance encounter with Satish Kumar and was moved to come to Schumacher as an MSc student. Philip began and edits the Holistic Science Journal. He is also the convener of a successful inquiry forum called Process and Pilgrimage.

Asia Institute Chinese Language Seminar: Urban Environment in Korea & China

20160706第八届

洪陵文化沙龙中文研讨会圆满结束

 

By- 万延娇

2016年7月6日第8届洪陵文化沙龙圆满结束。洪陵文化沙龙中文研讨会是由庆熙大学孔子学院、亚洲研究所、庆熙网络大学中国学系联合主办,中国国家汉办孔子学院总部后援支持。第八届的研讨主题是“中韩城市环境”. 庆熙大学孔子学院方萍院长与孔院老师一行、亚洲研究所李万烈所长一行, 庆熙网络大学中国学系林奎燮教授一行、高丽大学崔溶澈教授、KC大学郑殿辉教授、成均馆儒林会馆教育孟康铉部长、延世大学杨向峰教授、京畿大学刘子阳教授,还有韩国外国语大学孔子学院梁耀中老师一行等人参会。

 

会议从下午6点开始到8点结束,全程热烈讨论。会中对中韩两国的教育环境,城市化带来的贫富差距、教育不公、及如何建设好城市,好城市的标准是什么等进行了热烈的讨论。李万烈所长对中国过去与现在的文化历史非常感兴趣,在会上阐述了自己理解的两国城市文化。以西方人的视角来看两国观点很新鲜。过去穷人与富人都是住在一起的,现在随着城市化却贫与贫,富与富地分开居住,出现了富人不愿与穷人同住的倾向。高丽大学崔溶澈教授阐述了中产阶层在城市的重要性,贫富及中产阶层都是城市中非常重要的存在,相互自然搭配非常重要。院方萍院长与KC大学郑殿辉教授解说了中国的教育环境因素,并就韩国的教育环境因素与参会的教授们进行了讨论。 成均馆儒林会馆教育孟康铉部长提出的好城市需要具备的四个要素(绿色,安静,干净,活力)是非常具有启示性的发言。健康需要绿色,需要安静的深夜宁静,当然城市也需要干净与活力。只要考虑怎么让活力与安静自然并存。韩国外国语大学孔子学院梁耀中老师给出了一个城市好典型-韩国盆塘区。很喜欢方萍院长与庆熙网络大学中国学系林奎燮教授就韩中两国的教育环境及居住环境提出疑问并与参会人员积极讨论的场面。

中国人民共和国驻大韩民国大使馆艾宏歌教育参赞发来邮件衷心祝愿此次活动举办成功,富有成效.并期待下次有机会参加活动!很遗憾此次活动成均馆大学的李安东教授、日本参事官園田庸先生等因事未能出席,只好期待下次再聆听他们行云流水般又清晰透彻的发言了。会后大家还在愉快的氛围中共进了晚餐。本次第八届洪陵文化沙龙中文研讨会取得了好成果圆满结束了。因为开心、交流与收获,已经开始期待第九届了。

20160706 홍릉문화살롱중문세미나 끝난 후

 

By- 만연교

 

2016년7월6일 제8회 홍릉문화살롱중문세미나가 원만하게 끝났다. 홍릉문화살롱은 경희대학교 공자아카데미.아시아연구소.경희사이버대학교 중국학과 공동주최하고 공자아카데미본부 후원해주는 정기 문화세미나이다. 제8회의 주제는 “중한도시환경”이다. 경희대학교공자아카데미 팡핑(方萍)원장님과 공자아카데미 선생님 일행, 아시아연구소 이만열(李万烈)소장일행, 경희사이버대하교중국학과 임규섭학과장님 일행, 고려대학교 최용철교수님, KC대학교 정전휘 (郑殿辉)교수님, 성균관대학교유림회관 맹강현부장님, 연세대학교 양시양풍(杨向峰)교수님,경기대학교 유자양(刘子阳)교수,또는 외국어대학교공자아카데미 량야오중(梁耀中)선생들 일행들이 참석하셨다.

 

회의는 6시부터 8시까지 회의의 토론이 열렬하게 진행했다. 회의 중에 중국의 교육환경과 한국교육환경, 도시화 하면서 가져온 빈부차이. 교육 불공평. 또는 어떻게 하면 더 좋은 도시를 건설할 수 있는지, 좋은 도시의 표준은 무엇인지에 대하여 열렬하게 토론했다. 이만열소장님은 중국 한국의 과거, 현재의 문화역사에 대한 모두 관심이 있고 회의에서 자기 이해하는 양국의 도시문화를 말씀하셨다. 서양인의 시작으로 양국을 살펴보는 것이 매우 새롭다. 옛날에 부자와 가난한 사람들은 같이 살았었는데 현재 도시화하면서 빈와빈.부와부. 사람들은 끼리끼리 사고 부와 빈이 같이 살고 싶지 않는 경향이 좀 나타난 것 같다. 고려대학교 최용철교수님이 중산층이 도시에서 중요성, 빈과 부 및 중산층이 모두 도시에 중요한 존재라고 서로 어울리게 지내는 것이 가장 중요한다고 발언하셨다.경희대학교공자아카데미 팡핑(方萍)원장님과 KC대학교 정전휘(郑殿辉)교수님들은 중국 교육환경인소를 설명하셨고 한국의 교육환경인소에 대하여 한국교수님들과 토론하셨다. 성균관대학교유림회관 맹강현부장님이 말씀하신 좋은 도시가 갖춰야 할 4가지요소 (绿色그린,安净고요한,干净깨끗함,活力활력)은 계시적인 말씀이시다. 겅강은 그린을 필요하고 조용히 필요하는 밤에 고요하고, 물론 좋은 도시면 깨끗해야 하고 활력도 있어야 한다. 단 어떻게 활력과 고요함을 어울리게 병존하는 지 고려하면 된다. 외국어대학교공자아카데미 량야오중(梁耀中)선생님이 좋은 도시모델로–한국 분당구를 제시했다. 팡핑(方萍)원장님과 경희사이버대학교중국학과 임규섭학과장님이 한중 양국의 교육환경 및 거주환경에 대한 질문을 하시면서 회의에 참가하신 인원들이랑 적극적으로 토론하는 모습을 참 보기 좋았다.중국인민공화국 주한중국대사관의 아이홍거(艾宏歌) 교육참사관께서 개최 성공을 기원하고 유익한 성과를 거두기 바란다고, 다음에 기회가 되면 참석하겠다고 메일을 보내왔다. 이번 세미나는 성균관대학의 리안동(李安东)교수와SONODA YO(園田庸)일본참사관 일이 있어서 참석하지 못해서 매우 아쉬웠다. 그들의 물 흐르는 듯하고 분명하는 말씀이 다음기회에 들을 수 있기를 기대한다. 세미나 끝난 뒤 맛있는 만찬도 즐거운 분위기에 맛있게 드셨다. 아울러 제8회 홍릉문화살롱중문세미나 좋은 성과도 얻었으니 잘 마쳤다. 기뻐서 교류와 소득이 있어서 벌써 제9회를 기다리고 있다.
