▲ A professor from Australia providing his theory
T
he Asia-Pacific Conference on Sustainable Energy & Environmental Technologies (APCSEET) was held in the Mirae Hall at the UOS from July 2 to 4. Various countries participated – the United States, Italy, Japan, China and other Asian countries. The theme of the 10th APCSEET was “The Spirit of Asia: Humans and Nature in Harmony,” reflecting one of the most important values in Asian culture – being in accord with Mother Nature.

Hyunook Kim, a professor in the School of Environmental Engineering at the UOS, explained that the theme was closely connected to Korea, Seoul, and the UOS. Korea is rising as the “Spirit of Asia,” and in its capital city, Seoul, is attracting world’s attention; therefore the UOS aims to be the “Soul of Seoul.” As the topic is sustainable energy and environmental technologies, several Korean professors provided exhibits and presentations, all addressing ecological technologies and energy.

The exhibits and presentations were divided into four sections, with one in the large conference hall of the Mirae Hall featuring some of most important topics, including sustainable solar power, water detoxification, and urban water rehabilitation. Other exhibits in smaller lecture rooms were held on the topics of energy, water, and the environment.

Affected by the recent MERS oubreak that swept Korea, APCSEET was shortened from four days to three days, and 70 percent of countries originally scheduled to attend were absent. Nonetheless, the conference was successful. Exhibits and presentations were tight, and the atmosphere was intimate. This well-known international conference was not only a meaningful event toward an ecological, sustainable future, but also a good chance to introduce Korea and the UOS to the world.
