”Technology and Culture Facing the Global Market”


UNEOS•SOUTH KOREA is an annual UNEOS program in collaboration with universities and industries in South Korea. The program presents an international conference: Beyond the Strategy of Global Economy Challenges “Technology and Culture Facing the Global Market”. Moreover, the program also provides some international excursion to give international exposure and broaden the knowledge of youth and an interesting culture excursion for those who cares about preserving the culture to face the global market challenges. Ideas and insights would be wasted away if they are not expressed. The youth needs some kind of platform to express their opinion, especially about the wide subject of global economy challenges. 
Technology has now created the possibility and even the likelihood of a global culture. The Internet, fax machines, satellites, and cable TV are sweeping away cultural boundaries. Global entertainment companies shape the perceptions and dreams of ordinary citizens, wherever they live. This spread of values, norms, and culture tends to promote Western ideals of capitalism. Will local cultures inevitably fall victim to this global "consumer" culture? Will English eradicate all other languages? Will consumer values overwhelm peoples' sense of community and social solidarity? Or, on the contrary, will a common culture lead the way to greater shared values and political unity? We are the young generation, the hope of our nation; let us give our best for a better world.
