The Ministry of Environment designated UOS as a ‘Green Campus’ and accordingly, UOS complied with the government policy of ‘low-carbon green growth and the reduction of greenhouse gas.’

Recently, UOS carried out a lot of practices to follow the policy and one of them is a ‘Tending a vegetable garden project,’ proceeding from May to November this year. This project was inspired by the idea that tending a vegetable garden helps recover the ecological functions of soil, teaches team-work and also promotes friendship between students and professors. To make this project efficient, a lecture on gardening was held on May 21 by the Seoul’s Agricultural Technology Center.

However, when it was announced that the present parking lot in front of the 1st Engineering Building would be used as a space for this project, a lot of complaints arose from Dept. of Environmental Engineering students who mainly use this building. They proposed their opinions about the project to Park Won-soon, the Mayor of Seoul, through his Facebook page. First, they said manure smells pretty bad and the building will be infested with insects. It is uncertain who at UOS will manage this problem. Second, there are not any countermeasures to make up for the lost parking lot. It was originally used not only as a parking lot, but also as a place for Dept. of Environmental Engineering students’ various events. Third, other than the parking lot in front of the 1st Engineering Building, there are enough places for vegetable gardening across the basketball court and the lawns beside the 1st Engineering Building.

Though the gardening project was planned for decent purposes, it seems that UOS overlooked one important point: the inconveniences of everyone involved in the Dept. of Environmental Engineering. It is important that UOS resolves this conflict smoothly and reaches a compromise through a lively dialogue.
