Korea's School Grounds Projects
Park, Joohun
PEB Exchange, Article 16 Oct 2003
This article describes two projects which Korea has undertaken to improve its school grounds: (1) the Green School Project; and (2) the School Forest Pilot Project. The Korean Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development (MOE&HRI) recently launched the Green School Project centred on existing urban schools with poor outdoor environments. The project encourages schools and local community members to work together to improve school settings, with the intention of cultivating students and creating a sound relationship between the educational and local communities. By developing wooded areas, ponds, grassy areas and places for growing study plants, the project aims to improve the learning environment and create environmentally-friendly schools. The second project for improving the outdoor school environment by developing wooded areas is currently being promoted by Forest of Life's School Grounds Committee. The School Forest Pilot Project is co-financed by the government (Office of Forestry) and a private company (Yuhan-Kimberley, Corp.).
