The problem with current education system at the global and national level is that industry and education are operating in their own way. Our reality is that teachers of the 20th century are teaching children of the 21st century in a curriculum and educational environment of the 19th century. However, the ongoing education method of one-way conveyance of information and educational contents centered on knowledge that do not reflect the rapidly changing trends of the times are being pointed as problems. Furthermore, it is necessary for us to emphasize the importance of environmental education to enhance awareness on environmental issues. The technological civilization of the industrial society resulted in the abuse of natural resources going beyond the limitations of Earth, as well as the destruction of the natural environment, which is the foundation of human life. As carbon emissions increased to the highest ever in human history and in the current state in which we face the climate crisis caused by global heating, education is still being provided focused on technologies. Therefore, environmental education to enhance awareness on this problem and come up with solutions is an issue that cannot be put off any longer.
metaWe intend to open the age of e-learning 3.0 through the ‘METASQUARE’ platform, which is a metaverse-type school for fostering outstanding human resources with creative and convergent thoughts and ideas, not to mention assisting the self-realization of people in a third virtual world and helping them to acquire the necessary capacities and knowledge for the development and subsistence of humanity. The objective of this project is to elevate future capacities for living actively in the rapidly changing society and environment of the 21st century and ultimately, foster 21st century human resources who can contribute to the community, and furthermore, our place of life. First, within the metaverse platform, we will make it possible to share and guarantee all knowledge and know-how of not only knowledge communicators but also individual learners and their own stories. Regarding this, the scope of education will include not only the regular K-12 curriculum of schools, but also educational contents of various sectors inside and outside of the school such as humanities, sociology, culture, and art for self-development and growth, and it will be conducted together with a variety of environmental movement campaigns such as tree-planting as efforts to be perpetual with livelihood and culture.

Blockchain & Certified Emission Reduction (CER)

Rapid increase in carbon emissions

Currently, environmental problems are very serious. As of 2020, the world emitted about 34.8 Gton CO2eq. Although this figure has been reduced by about 2 Gton CO2eq due to the effects of COVID-19, it is a figure that has more than doubled from 40 years ago.

Global Heating

If carbon emissions are maintained at the same level as today for the next 10~15 years, the average temperature would rise by around 3°C.


Efforts to reduce carbon emissions

In the Paris Agreement adopted at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change held in Paris in 2015, it was agreed to make efforts to achieve the goals of maintaining the global average temperature increase well below 2°C and further to suppress to less than 1.5°C by 2100 compared to pre-industrial level for human survival. In addition, IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C in 2018 predicted the point when the global average temperature would rise by 1.5°C as 2030 ~ 2052 and recommended that “globally, the greenhouse gas emissions should be decreased by 45% until 2030 compared to the level of 2010 and net emissions should reach ‘zero’ by 2050.” in order to achieve the 1.5°C increase suppression target.


Effective Project Management Using Blockchain

Blockchain will make it possible for the forest management organization to collect ground-level data and effectively manage the tree-planting project to ensure invariability to users participating in this project, thus making it possible to provide security and effectiveness. This will resolve the difficulty with continuously managing and monitoring the developed forest, and it is also expected to guarantee perpetuity of the project over generations.


Blockchain & Edtech

The short-term surge in consumption for education technology (EdTech) due to COVID-19 is expected to be rebalanced over the next few years as digital technologies become integrated in the long term and shift towards much higher online education levels. This transformation will require significant infrastructure for learning, data and management as most schools and universities are still at the beginning of their digital maturity journey. Blockchain technology will play a role in bringing innovation to the structural transformation of education. In particular, blockchain technologies can safely save vast amounts of information and data. Everything ranging from evaluation reports to important documents can be saved safely in blocks that compose blockchain technologies, and students can also check their achievements based on high levels of reliability. Using blockchain technology, the following improvements can be expected in key dimensions of the education and learning process. - Ensuring data autonomy of learner - Enhancement of security and efficiency for educational institutions, companies and learners
