Green Korea 2001;In pursuit of economic and environmental sustainability

Ministry of Environment - Republic of Korea (2001)

In the 20th century, a significant portion of humankind achieved remarkable economic growth, which brought great material abundance. In the new century, however, new focus should be placed on the quality of national development and a quality of life that matches economic gains. Meeting these challenges, the President declared a National Environmental Vision for the New Millennium on Environment Day (June 5th) last year and proclaimed that the Republic of Korea will create a community where both humans and our life-giving environment thrive\"
