“Summer has come! But its usage of electricity is dramatically increasing.”
Our consumer and environment team allowed our eight online supporters to be educated about the ways of energy saving for the earth on June 15th, 11th, and 18th.
Based on these three events, the supporters will be actively engaged in promoting the way of power-saving.
On the first day, Yumi Go, the lecturer, talked about why we should save our precious energy.
According to the Korean Meteorological Administration, they predict that the temperature this year will be higher than the average. The heat wave will be extremely serious and prolonged. Due to the global warming continued at this fast speed, the glacier melts thus making the sea level rise. Therefore, it will cause the extinction of some animals and plants as well as could destroy our entire life. Thus, Seoul YWCA wants you to know what you can exercise in daily life by preventing global warming.
On the second and the third day, the other lecturer, Sun-suk Kwon introduced the current amounts of our energy demand, the importance of the transition of energy type and new & renewable energy. Also, she emphasized the daily exercise for energy saving and gave us two easy tips.
• Use the tumbler instead of the plastic or disposable cup
• Unplug the power cord that you don’t use
You have already known these tips, but you don’t follow them, do you?
It was a great time to remind our electricity usage pattern and we have to strive to reduce electricity used starting from the easy tips in daily life.
Seoul YWCA wants to say the energy-saving starts from an individual’s effort and these efforts can make a great number of positive changes in our planet.
We finally had completed three courses of saving our earth and promised that we will be the first to reduce the electricity usage even though it is uncomfortable.
Please watch Seoul Y energy saving online supporters’ great next activity.
