My name is Karina Schumacher. I am a German ecologist and eco-activist. The General Secretary of the Korean Church in the Republic of Korea (PROK) calls me an Eco-Missionary. Indeed I am sent by two European Mission organizations (EMS and mission 21) to work with the Korean ECMC - the Ecology Community Movement Centre of the PROK.
The amazing feature of ecology is its simplicity and complexity at the same time. We just need to understand that everything is related and interdependent. If a part of it is destroyed the whole system becomes volatile. Easy, isn't it? But where is the relation to you and me? What does it mean for our everyday life? To convey those questions and possible answers is the reason that I am in Korea since January 2012.
