Visiting Yeosu World Expo 2012

When education is combined with entertainment it’s often called, edutainment, but if you combine the best of both into an emotionally engaging and impactful experience it becomes something more, it becomes inspiration and that’s what you’ll find at the Yeosu World Expo of 2012. The event is meant to inspire, but you’ll have to hurry, because it’s only here for a season and then it will be gone forever. It ends on August 12.

Yes, this is the ancestor of the great world’s fair tradition that started in London in 1851 and introduced the great crystal palace. This is the same tradition that served as a platform to introduce us to the telephone, television, the statue of liberty, the Eiffel tower, motion pictures, the ferris wheel, escalators and disney’s, “It’s a Small World.” This year the event will be held in Korea and the theme will be “The Living Ocean and Coasts”.

Lecture on Competition Dilemma: Has Korean Competition Reached Its limit?

The severe competition in Korean society was the main force behind Korea’s seemingly miraculous economic development. On the other hand, many of the serious social issues facing Koreans today are the result of excessive competition. There is also much evidence that the Korean way of competing may in fact be stifling the creativity needed to continue to develop into an advanced society. Ms. Lee will discuss the issue of competition and, based on the research of the SBS Future Korea Report (aired on November 2, 2011), will suggest that Korean competition is in a dilemma. She will share the results of the first research that SBS did last year with Gallup about how Koreans feel about competition and will suggest some ideas about how Korea can build a happier, healthier, better society in the future.
