Seorae village to hold climate change forums


A series of forums addressing the impact of pollution and food containers on the environmen­t will be held at Seorae Global Village Center beginning Thursday.

Titled “What we eat and urban gardening” the discussion will focus on eco packaging, the benefits of urban gardening and the problems of overpackag­ing.

“We are all aware of the pollution, the preciousne­ss of the clean air, and the global climate warming, but how are we applying this knowledge in our day-to-day lives?” the program states.

“How often do we pay extra to load our groceries into vinyl bags? How often do we eat takeout? We all own an eco-bag, but how actively do we think about carrying it with us?”

Many cities in transition are making a mark around the globe and Seorae Village seeks to join this global movement.

“We cannot do this alone. We need as many people as possible to make an impact, however small, however insignific­ant,” organizers said. The free lecture is from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

Other lectures are “Energy (climate change and renewable energy)” on May 3 and “Cities in Transition. What’s next?” for June 7.

To get there, leave exit 6 of Express Bus Terminal Station on lines 3, 7 and 9, transfer to green bus 13 and get off at Seorae Global Village Center bus stop. Preregistr­ation is required. Come in person or email
