BadaEnergy conducts marine energy education campaign: ‘Together with Ocean’ in collaboration with KOSM
 “Let’s explore ocean energy through hands-on experiences” BadaEnergy conducts marine energy education campaign: ‘Together with Ocean’ in collaboration with KOSM   •   BadaEnergy and the National Ocean Science Museum staged a local ESG education campaign ‘Together with Ocean’ at an elementary school located in Buk-gu, Ulsan. •   A lecture on marine energy such as tidal and offshore wind, along with a hands-on session making wind-powered LED lighthouses aroused students’ scientific interest.   [2024. 05. 20] BadaEnergy, a portfolio of offshore wind projects in South Korea jointly developed by Corio Generation, TotalEnergies and SK ecoplant, announced on May 20 that it conducted a marine energy education campaign, titled ‘Together with Ocean,’ at an elementary school located in Buk-gu, Ulsan in collaboration with the National Ocean Science Museum (Director Kim Oe-cheol).   Marking the third year in a row, the campaign ‘Together with Ocean’ (Subtitled: Ocean #We Promise You #We are With You), is a representative local ESG program of BadaEnergy, which is carrying out 1.5GW floating offshore wind projects off the coast of Ulsan. This educational campaign is designed for future generations fighting against climate crisis, to learn about eco-friendly energy including wind and to encourage them to take an active interest in carbon neutrality and marine environmental protection. This program is conducted in collaboration with the National Ocean Science Museum (KOSM) every year.   The campaign provided two classes of sixth graders at the elementary school in Buk-gu, Ulsan, with education and hands-on sessions to foster better understanding and scientific interest in marine energy.   In the first session, the KOSM, the only institution in Korea that offers education and exhibitions of marine science, introduced a variety of types and concepts of marine energy such as tidal, offshore wind, and ocean thermal energy, under the theme of ‘Let’s Explore Marine Energy with the Turtle Ship of Korean admiral Yi Sun-shin.’ During the second session for hands-on experiences, the students had a fun time understanding the principles of wind turbines more easily by making a wind-powered LED lighthouse model and competing to keep the lighthouse’s LED light bulbs on by mouth blowing.   On the same day, BadaEnergy also delivered to students a set of eco-friendly school supplies from a local zero-waste shop in Ulsan. By using eco-friendly products that minimize plastic waste discarded into landfill or the nature environment including oceans, the students recognized the zero-waste culture again and developed a consensus on the necessity to put carbon neutrality into practice as well as reduce their carbon footprint by using local stores.   “We have witnessed better responses from students participating in the campaign since it consists of both an education class that is tailored to students’ learning level and hands-on activities to raise their interest,” said BadaEnergy, which has been sponsoring the campaign for three years. “Since Ulsan is a city where one of the world’s largest floating offshore wind farms is being developed, we will also take responsibility as a member of the local community and strive to increase ESG program opportunities for future generations.”   Lee Beom-seok, a senior researcher at the KOSM, said, “The campaign provided great opportunity to inform younger generations of the importance of renewable energy that can be obtained from the ocean, and starting in Ulsan, we’ll further expand an ’Ocean Science Museum Outreach’ education program starting from September.”   Meanwhile, in addition to the ocean and carbon neutrality education programs for elementary schools in Ulsan, BadaEnergy continues to carry out ESG activities to co-prosper with the local community, including supporting environmental education projects through Community Welfare Center in Ulsan and ChildFund Korea. It is also holding a content contest for college students in Ulsan under the theme of ‘Floating offshore wind projects to co-prosper with the local community’ from March, with an aim to improve the understanding of offshore wind among youths and enhance communication with the local community.    Photo 1) BadaEnergy conducted marine energy education campaign ‘Together with Ocean’ with the KOSM at the elementary school located in Buk-gu, Ulsan, on May 17.   Photo 2) BadaEnergy conducted marine energy education campaign ‘Together with Ocean’ with the KOSM at the elementary school located in Buk-gu, Ulsan, on May 17.
