On October 10, Weert Börner, the Deputy Head of Mission of German Embassy Seoul, gave a special lecture at the International Studies Hall of Korea University (KU). The special lecture was held as a commemorative event for the photo exhibition on Environment, Conflict, and Cooperation, which will be held from October 10 to 30 on the second floor of the International Studies Hall. The lecture was given on the same topic as the exhibition, and KU-Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP)-Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS) European Union (EU) Center organized the events overall.

 
Börner began the lecture by pointing out the irrational disparities between the poor and rich countries, in the level of contribution and vulnerability to climate change. He showed a map on the climate change vulnerability in general and mentioned, “Although the countries in Africa and Central America did not contribute much to climate change, they are the most susceptible regions to the change.”
 
Then, the vice-ambassador warned the impact of climate change by comparing South Korea to Dominican Republic. According to Börner, Dominican Republic suffered from serious floods as the rise of ocean temperature changed the precipitation patterns, and Korea cannot be an exception to such disasters. During the Question and Answer (Q&A) session, he recognized the potential of solar and wind energy to lead the German energy transformation policies in the near future.
