Kyungpook National University
These days, people are getting much concerned about the environment. Because it is not easy for polluted regions to make themselves clean naturally. So it demands our attention to the environment. We should take care of our natural environment.
Through the previous 'Campus Issue' of The Yeungnam Observer, I found out about a useful and beneficial organization, GENTEC (Gyeongbuk Regional Environment Technology Development Center). The Center is aimed at forming a local community for more sustainable environment. And it carries several activities into execution. GENTEC tries to develop environmental technology and support environment technologies in local communities. Also, it distributes the latest environmental information.
GENTEC is composed of local autonomous organizations, the Ministry of Environment, enterprises, private organizations, Yeungnam University, and eight other participating universities. So I learned that the Center is constituted by various groups systematically. I think that GENTEC can influence positively the environmental management of Gyeongbuk province which we live in. And also, it will give an honor to Yeungnam University.
The thing which impressed me most while reading the introduction of GENTEC is that it conducts environmental industry internships. Through this activity, graduates of environment related departments can be trained and supported financially for their training. I think this system of GENTEC is very helpful to both graduates and enterprises because we need more specialists in environmental business. On the point of enterprises, they can recruit excellent graduates thanks to environmental industry internships conducted by GENTEC.
In conclusion, I hope many people should pay more attention to the environment and that more institutions relating to environment be founded. So our commitment to maintaining the clean environment will help some polluted regions to recover gradually from the dying earth. Even though we cannot return to Eden, we hope we can make our world better for the coming generations to live in. Thus, we should not forget that people benefit from our environment absolutely. If we don't consider protecting our environment any more, the real host which appears the movie, 'The Host', may come into the world!!
