PEACE MESSENGER & ENVIRONMENTALIST
2001 ~2005 Keio Gijuku Shounan Hujisawa Policy Management
I studied and graduated from Keio University in Japan, majoring Policy Management before going on to Korea where I studied Korean language and later entered Yonsei post graduate school. However my love of nature and environment led reconsider my decision and chose to leave the graduate school to pursue a career protecting the earth.
I decided to become an activist spreading the word to people about the need to preserve the environment. Soon after my decision I joined Earthwalker, Paul Coleman on his mission to help green the Beijing Olympic games
Since 2007 As Peace messenger – a special project called CELEBRATION EARTH – which is leading event of International day of peace – “The Culture of Peace Initiative”, designated by the United Nations as a Peace Messenger Initiative and the leading event of the 2009 International Day of Peace, I have been spreading the message of peace and environmental protection to the global community by walking and doing several kinds of activities such as organizing Peace Day events, the planting of trees, helping and giving hope to young generations especially orphans.
Over 7 years action since 2007 I walked 13,100 km, planting 5008 trees, visiting 800 schools and 250 orphanages in 20 different countries.
After the long walking mission from China to London, walking 12,500 km for a total of five years, planting 4060 trees, visiting 700 schools and 200 orphanages in 17 different countries, he began a new project called “Peace Week”. It is planned as an educational project which spreads peace and is especially aimed at young generations. It is going to occur annually from 14th September until the International Day of Peace on 21st September.
Moreover as other Peace Week project from this year I have started new project called “School of Peace” cooperating with Junior high school and primary school in this world since 2015.
Through the Peace Education Project we unite together and make the connection with each other and try to do sustainable actions and educations to the next generation of the world!
Following the aims and doing the actions we try to reach the goal of project & grow great young generation to be a common citizen of peace & our mother earth.
These all actions motivation comes from my past, and experiences & learning from
my master Paul Coleman who is well known as Earthwalker.
– *when I was 6 years old I saw the news of Ozone hole and at same time I was bullied by his class mate and these experiences awaked his humanity toward protection the environment & Peace. Moreover 2005 due to losing my precious people – “Best Friend” & “Fiancee” by cancer & suicide, I determined to forget my own life and uses my life, uses my money, uses my time uses everything for Peace making a better world for everybody! At same time I found wonderful person’s information which is United Nation Peace Ambassador / Earthwalker Paul Coleman who has been walking over 20 years and planted 11 millions trees for Peace for the Earth. And started walking for Peace!
The main goal is the Young generation people to be able to think about Peace, to act for peace, to spread the peace, and to imagine the peace individually and cooperate & unit different countries and people toward Peace. And more over through the raising the awareness of Peace & Protection the environment among young people we will try to make a better world and more decent world where all people & creatures can live together happily and peacefully.
