Green Consumer Network is a non-commercial, non-governmental, and non-political civic group which consists of all the consumers participated. . Money (market) and power (government) are not all the things for the sound and healthy development of our society. A new social idea should as well be there to open up the new future. GCN is the civic group which creates the very new social idea and makes it grow up for better public interest.

Green Consumer Network is a consumer network that protects consumer's right and profit.

. Concerning all the products and services provided in the global market, we consumers have rights to be safe, to know them exactly, to choose them correctly, to organize ourselves properly, to be informed in due course, to give influence to the providers, to be in a pleasant atmosphere. These rights, however, are often ignored as well as jeopardized due to profit-oriented suppliers and fierce competition in the markets. Towns and cities, furthermore all the places for our living should be protected against dangerous technologies which may jeopardize those fundamental 8 rights and eventually our quality of life.

GCN is a civil volunteer work organization and a membership movement group which is operated by voluntary and active participation of each and every member citizen.

[The resolution in the 1st National Convention]
As the Earth-place for our living- has been seriously destroyed due to the restless economic activity of the human race, civil society in the world finally realized global environmental crisis and pledged resolution to keep our common future by our own hand.

Establishment of this environmental revolution gave new hope to Korean society in which the value of the people, the community, and the nature was fading away due to the supreme order of development priority. Citizens are reborn as friends of the earth in which we are living, as caretakers who modernize community healthy and safe, and as the owners of new consciousness free from indulgence in material and live with nature as its neighborhood. Ultimately, a life symbiosis with the nature is the way that recovers humane life, and leads community and state to our goal of justice and peace.


A life which saves the earth is the life of green consumer

Changes in consumer pattern and the creation of sustainable lifestyle are the power to enable environmental revolution and the symbol of accomplishment. The virtue of green consumer starts from recycling things, choosing eco-friendly products, saving the energy, using energy conservative products, and using renewable energy.

Human race is ecologically connected to the nature and so the eco-friendly consumer life is the way to keep our body healthy and safe. It is the greatest performance than any other to make our town clean and safe, to make our community good place for us and for the nature in the era of environmental crisis.

Today, our life is depending on the globally networked market system. To prevent our lives from being fooled by unfair profit pursuit activity and to make us the leader of the market society, we have to do exchange information and surveillance, to arrange broad solidarity and cooperation within the civil society. In the worldwide market system, we consumers should secure our leadership for better quality of life.


We want to be a movement body appropriate to the new spirit of the time.

An environmental revolution is the quiet revolution that recognizes the fact that the human life should be harmonized with the earth and practices voluntarily tiny things rather than campaigning a huge slogan.

First of all, we would like to be an organization which practices the idea that small is beauty which is the real value of the environmental era. Also, at the verge of this information age, we want to be a network whose main function stays in each practicing individual, not in the center of the system. We want to be an organization in which citizens who continually practice small things are respected and communication among the members are well organized. We want to be an organization that meaningfully produces small changes, not a big change all at once. Also, we rather want to understand other people’s problems than to criticize them, to develop ability to solve them and to put emphasis on win-win system which comes from harmony among various values, not to maintain only one value.
