Hanyang University signed the cooperation contract with SK C&C on October 5th, to create social values through the 'Haeng-Ga-Rae(幸加來)' application.
About ten people attended the contract ceremony, including Hanyang University Vice-President of faculty education Kim Myeong-gik and the president of the SK C&C Happiness Expanding Center Ahn Suk-ho. This contract was signed to develop a digital platform that allows university students to create social values, through activities such as reducing carbon emission, preventing overuse of resources, social donation, activating social enterprises, and more. SK C&C will open up and explain the operational know-how of 'Haeng-Ga-Rae', the social value creation supporting platform, and help the application to be utilized in universities.
'Haeng-Ga-Rae' is the blockchain-based platform that was developed by the idea from 2019 SK C&C members. The application aims to spread the SV(Social Value) among the society, adding the meaning of 'Creating tomorrow that adds happiness' on its name. The SK C&C members have downloaded the Haeng-Ga-Rae application and accumulate the SV Points, through carrying out activities such as using the tumbler, using the stairs, walking, blood donations, and volunteer work, both sided printing, and finishing all food in the company cafeteria. The accumulated points are used for donations or buying products related to social enterprises.
As the contract is made, Hanyang University students and faculty can download the 'Hanyang University Haeng-Ga-Rae' application on Google Playstore and Apple App Store starting from October 8th. Various Hanyang University SV Points will be automatically accumulated when activities such as walking on the campus building stairs, using tumblers, finishing all food in the university cafeteria, and more. Individual SV Points can be used in university cafes, bookstore, and buying souvenirs within the university. The university is also planning to allow students to purchase products of social enterprises and make donations using the SV Point through the 'Hanyang University Haeng-Ge-Rae' application.
Kim Myeong-gik Hanyang University Vice-President of faculty education mentioned that "the university is currently having difficulty in letting students know of the social values that are in need and provide chances for students to create these social values, largely due to the untact environment," and added "'Haeng-Ga-Rae' is a way for students to create social values without the limitations of time and location, allowing students to directly see the social values that they are creating. This will hold great meaning in using the application within the university."
