GKU acts as an umbrella organization for many smaller green groups and takes root in the idea of co-existence of mankind and nature.
Under this vision, they work on realization of respect for life, society of eco-cycle, non-violent peace, and environmental autonomy.
Although initially established in 1997 for professional research, Green Future Campaign now became more centered on citizens and focuses on educating future generations and finding solutions to create a better environment for future posterity.
They mainly research about water, climate change, fine dust, and ecology from a future perspective, while also holding many sessions for students in Korea so that they can be future environmental leaders.
