SNU Receives National Energy Globe Award for the Republic of Korea 2014
July 9, 2014 SNU and Seoul Metropolitan Government’s joint efforts on the green roof project received the Energy Globe Awards’ National Award for the Republic of Korea 2014. SNU created 826 square meters of ‘green roof’ on Building No. 35, planting grass, flowers, shrubbery, and vegetables. These gardens reduced the risk of flooding by absorbing rain, as was proved last year when they stored up to 3 hours of rain, thereby delaying flooding. The green roof also increased the energy efficiency of the building and reduced the heat-island effect. When measured at noon, the green roof was 26.1 degrees Celsius, whereas a concrete roof was 53.8 degrees. The award ceremony was held at Seoul City Hall where Elisabeth Bertagnoli, the Austrian ambassador to South Korea, gave out the award on behalf of the Energy Globe Foundation. more

Interview with Professor PAIK Jin-Hyun
July 11, 2014 Professor Paik Jin-Hyun (Graduate School of International Studies) was reelected for a second term of office as a presiding judge at the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. Based on the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, ITLOS adjudicates problems related to fishing rights, maritime environment protection and EEZ delineation. It also gives advisory opinions. ITLOS sits at Hamburg, Germany and its judges are elected from renowned scholars and lawyers who are familiar with international law or diplomats. Professor Paik stressed that the functions of ITLOS are directly linked to the national interests of South Korea as a peninsular country. “During the last five years many Chinese legal officers were elected at international tribunals. We need to raise specialists in international law and maritime law,” he said. more
