“Gyeonggi-do” has been a center stage of our history for thousands of years and is
“a city worthy of living” with rich cultural heritages and beautiful environments.
It makes strides towards ‘Gyeonggi-do’ in the world’, playing a role central to Korea in all areas such as economy∙culture∙society etc.
However, it also has experienced difficulties such as damaging natural environments and aggravating residential∙living environments of residents in the midst of rapid industrialization and urbanization.
Environmental problems should necessarily be solved to continue to develop & prosper and lead Korea’s entry into an advanced country in the 21st century, ‘a century of environment’.
At present, it is urgent to make action programs to fulfill and realize the new paradigm of‘balance between growth & environment’ and ‘sustainable development & preservation.’
Gyeonggi-do established a comprehensive green plan, 「Green Gyeonggi Programs 21」 with the aim of realizing “a pleasant living environment.”
The green Gyeonggi creation project is a forward-looking and environmentally friendly action plan for enabling residents to experience more green spaces and maximizing the benefits of green spaces.
To achieve the green vision of the 21st century Gyeonggi-do efficiently, residents need to actively engage in creation of green spaces and management of ecosystem.
『Gyeonggi Greenspace Foundation』, which involves citizens•academia•media•NGO etc. together, will become a window leading citizens to participate in tree planting activities and a key player to promote the 「Green Gyeonggi Programs 21」.
With the local government and citizens coming together and forming a solid partnership, Gyeonggi-do is sure to be reborn as a pleasant and beautiful living place harmonizing human beings and nature.
Therefore, we, promoters of 『Gyeonggi Greenspace Foundation』, earnestly support its establishment and pledge to take the lead in realizing the great dream of ‘Green Gyeonggi’.
