-cheon Eco Park
Green Onyang-cheon painted by Hyundai Motor Company and University of Seoul students
Hyundai Motor Company has been always concerned about protecting our green earth and promoting a clean environment. That is why it
has always tried its best to improve the environment more than any other company. Among the projects that Hyundai Motor Company has
been working on, the <Asan Onyang-cheon 1 company 1 stream> initiative is immensely popular with citizens. <Asan Onyang-cheon
1 company 1 stream>, which is a philanthropic initiative conducted by Hyundai Motor with five other organizations, has improved the water
quality and aquatic ecosystems of Onyang-cheon, Asan.
Through the continuous effort of Hyundai Motor Company over the last five years since 2012, Asan Onyang-cheon has been transformed
into an Eco park where pure water, rated as second grade water, runs. The environmental condition of Asan Onyang-cheon has improved
so much that the indigenous fish species Abbottina springeri thrives here. In addition, stepping-stones have been laid across the stream
to add an aesthetic touch. However, Hyundai Motor Company was not satisfied yet. A beautiful and comfortable resting area is still missin
g, in the opinion of the company. From June 24 to 26, Hyundai Motor Company and University of Seoul students joined forces to rectify this
Hyundai Motor Company adds happiness to Asan Onyang-cheon
"I want to express my heartfelt thanks to Hyundai Motor Company and University of Seoul students who are making a great effort to preserv
e the local environment in these difficult economic times that affect everybody."
In front of Sindong Bridge at Onyang-cheon Eco Park, a mural-painting voluntary activity commenced with Mayor Kim Young-bum's moving
speech. Volunteers painted murals on a bridge post which had previously been an empty space and started preparations to create a resti
ng area for citizens. 36 summer mural-painting volunteers of University of Seoul participated in this Onyang-cheon Eco Park mural-painting
project. In addition, the Hyundai Motor factory manager, Lee Sang-hoon, Deputy Mayor of Asan, Kim Young-bum, President of Onyang 3-d
ong Saemael(New Community) Organization, Kim Sung-man, and Chairman of Cheonan-Asan Federation of Environmental Movement, Shin
Eon-suk, graced the occasion with their presence.
On that day, they were busy doing groundwork before painting the mural. Head of the Safe-Environment Team, Park Sung-ho also rolled
up his sleeves to work with the students. Despite the warm and humid weather, everyone was concentrating on painting the background,
with joyful faces. Lee Kyung-hee(New Materials Engineering) who joined this project as a member of the mural volunteers of University of
Seoul said, 'I'm so glad that I can participate in something meaningful instead of lazing around after the exams.' Even while speaking with
a grin, she never stopped making strokes with her brush on the post. The large post of Sindong Bridge became like a sketch pad and und
er-drawing was completed according to the design.
