Do you know Al Gore, who now works as a climate expert? He was the vice president in the USA when Bill Clinton was standing as president. He led the Kyoto Protocol and put much effort on expanding national parks and decreasing the release of greenhouse gases. In addition with making a documentary film about global warming, he got a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, too.
Surprisingly, he visited Korea and the Seoul Campus of Chung-Ang University on the first day of June for a lecture this year. It was held in the 5th basement floor of Building 310, in room number 501. It started at 4 o’clock for lasted for about one hour, consisting of a 20-minute lecture and a 40-minute Q&A session. The whole lecture was conducted in English without any translators, so the school notified students early that students who could speak English fluently might understand the lecture better and get opportunities for posing questions.
The seats were accepted in order of reservation through the internet and students who wanted to pose a question had to apply by the 14th of May, and then take an interview formed test on the 17th of May. The topic of the lecture was entitled “Climate Change, Digital Revolution, and Globalization”, which are the biggest Issues in current society. It was a great opportunity for students who were interested in these topics and Al Gore’s thoughts.
