CityNet CEO declares “Go! Go!” for the anti-plastic campaign, “Go! Go! Relay Challenge”

CityNet’s CEO Geunhyeong Yim is participating in the anti-plastic campaign, GO GO Challenge

Geunhyeong Yim, the CEO of CityNet, participated in the Go Go Challenge, an anti-plastic campaign by the Korean Ministry of Environment. In this campaign, CEO Yim raised awareness of marine pollution caused by plastic waste.

Go Go Challenge is a relay campaign that was launched by the Korean Ministry of Environment in January to reduce plastic waste. Participants are asked to commit on social media by posting one “do not” and one “to do” action.

CEO Yim was recently nominated by Jonghyun Lee, the CEO of Social Enterprise Network, to join the campaign. CEO Yim promised to reduce the amount of plastic usage in daily life by posting ‘GO and reduce plastic use!’ and ‘GO and make our oceans healthier!’

CityNet provides special programs focused on disaster preparedness, response and long-term rebuilding through its Disaster Cluster and continues its effort to connect cities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and strengthen urban resilience. This campaign is meaningful for the organization as CityNet has carried out projects for cities in the Asia-Pacific region that are suffering from serious marine pollution.

Meanwhile, CEO Yim appointed Mr. Kiyon Kil, Head of Seoul Tourism Organization, Korea, Mayor I Gusti Ngurah Jaya Negara of Denpasar, Indonesia, and also Mayor Geromino Jerry P. Trenas of Iloilo, Philippines, as the next participants to carry on this challenge.
