On the 76th Arbor Day, Incheon Global Campus Foundation held the 「Plant a Tree Event」 in the campus on April 9. Twenty executives and staff members, including CEO PAEK Ki-hun, planted 160 white pines and forsythias in unused lands to create an eco-friendly campus. The unused lands used to raise sand dust and were visually displeasing as they did not have flower beds. The foundation’s staff agreed to create a beautiful campus environment through the tree planting event. Significantly, the event was given a greater meaning for it facilitated more active communication and unity among staff members by sharing the outdoor activity, rarely held recently due to COVID-19.
