UNIVERSITY PARK, PA (PRWEB) May 20, 2006 -- Ke Chung Kim, professor of entomology and a founding member of an effort to turn the DMZ into a conservation zone, recently presented a keynote lecture at an international conference in Seoul, Korea.
Kim presented "DMZ, A Space for Life & Peace in Korea" at the Centennial Academic Conference "Korean Demilitarized Zone's (DMZ) Ecology and Peace of the Korean Peninsula," organized by the Institute of North Korean Studies.The conference was held at Dongguk University as part of the university's centennial anniversary events.
According to Kim, Dongguk University is devoted to bettering the future of East Asia and fostering peace and prosperity in the region."The conference is serving as a new vehicle to preserve the DMZ and realize peace on the Korean Peninsula," says Kim.He joined presenters from across the globe, including the US, China, Japan and Germany as well as South Korea.
The Korean DMZ is a corridor separating North Korea and South Korea.The DMZ was designated by an armistice agreement signed on July 27, 1953, signaling the end of the three-year Korean War.Since that time, the four-kilometer-wide and 250-kilometer-long area has remained relatively untouched by human activity, making the DMZ a unique natural area.
Kim has made numerous trips to his home country since 1995 to promote DMZ conservation."This is a difficult proposition because it requires collaboration between two countries who, until recently, had very little diplomatic contact," Kim explains.
...
Other proponents include American media mogul Ted Turner, who is now behind the DMZ Forum that was founded by Kim.
...
According to Kim, the conference ended with two resolutions: 1) Convene and conduct an annual international conference on the DMZ conservation and peace, and 2) propose and pursue legislation to establish the principle and national reserve for preserving the DMZ ecosystems for pan-Korean conservation and peace on the Korean peninsula.
In addition to being an entomology professor at Penn State, Kim is also curator of the Frost Entomological Museum and director for the Center for BioDiversity Research at Penn State.A certified forensic entomologist, Kim also instructs the Forensic Entomology Workshop held annually at the University Park campus.A native of Korea, Kim received his B.S. from Seoul National University, his M.A. from the University of Montana and his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota.
Established in 1963, Penn State's Department of Entomology has grown into a well-balanced department providing undergraduate education, graduate student training and extension outreach education focusing on both domestic and international issues.
