The 108th anti-nuclear power plant campaign



 It's been 30 years since Chernobyl disaster happened and it's been 5 years since Fukushima disaster frightened the world. Despite all the lengthy period of time, it is still reported serious post-disaster damages from the affected sites. Unfortunately, it seems like many people still doesn't understand how much dangerous nuclear power plants are.
There are a number of countries declared no nuclear power plant such as Germany, Italy, and Taiwan, but South Korea is appealing to spread out nuclear-based electric generation. It is sad that we have to admit South Korea has the densest nuclear power plants nationwide, this is the point YWCA want to escape of.

 
Then how can we solve this energy problem that threats our environment and accelerate global warming? We regards "getting-out-of-nuclear energy" and research and development of renewable energy as sustainable solutions.
 
In this regard, YWCA is gathering signatures to request petition for legislation of a feed-in tariff. A feed-in tariff (FIT, standard offer contract) advanced renewable tariff or renewable energy payments is a policy mechanism designed to accelerate investment in renewable energy technologies. It achieves this by offering long-term contracts to renewable energy producers, typically based on the cost of generation of each technology. Rather than pay an equal amount for energy, however generated, technologies such as wind power, for instance, are awarded a lower per-kWh price, while technologies such as solar PV and tidal power are offered a higher price, reflecting costs that are higher at the moment.1)
 

We are aware that this is not easy task to do, but we will never stop campaigning until the world life and peace without nuclear power plant. We would like you to join this movement!

Seoul YWCA has worked to advance women’s right since 1922, and is still working on support women who stepped out to explain what they experienced.

Women had endured for a long time before MeToo movement came out, and this is a new wave that they are no longer hiding their experience related with sexual violence. With this new wave, Media reports these issues every day, but they are missing something really important only by focusing sexually provocative subject. Because of this distorted media report, it causes secondary victimization of sexual violence victims.
