Borrowed Earth School, a representative social contribution activity of LG H&H, is a converged habit education program. It is the first of its kind in Korea, and helps people improve basic habits that they have never learned before, and think about dreams and future. To promote habit education for teenagers, we signed an MOU for invigorating the Test-free Semester System with the Ministry of Education and the Education Offices of each city and province, and have conducted the program in cooperation with Eco-mom Korea, an environmental NGO.
The participants share ideas about what kind of bad habits cause pollution and waste resources, and then learn good habits and examine themselves to discover their talents and dreams. This program differs from the general education in school since it is a form of creative converged education.
Program Design and Supervision by Experts
Based on the industry-academic cooperation with the team led by Myung-hee Kang, an educational technology professor at Ewha Womans University, we designed and revised the program for motivation strategies, habit training, and career mentoring. This program is now a creative habit education opportunity that keeps up with changes in the academic field. We also intended this program to help participants build a sense of achievement, self-esteem, and mature mindset for their future careers.
Employees’ Mentoring for Future Career
The employees of LG H&H participate in this program as lecturers, motivate students to learn green habits, and provide career mentoring in relation to their jobs, thereby creating a place for communication with teenagers and helping the participants plan their futures.
Details of Program
The program is comprised of nine subjects: face washing, beauty expert, tooth brushing, shampooing, dish washing, laundry, hand washing, recycling, and junior marketer. It provides creative and practical education to teenagers, serving as an opportunity for them to learn comprehensive insights into environment, science, habits, and the professional world.
