WS News

WS News is a news broadcast to showcase the events at Dwight School Seoul to our entire school community and beyond.



The Dwight Seoul Eco Council is a student-led club dedicated to increasing awareness of pressing global environmental issues within the Dwight community. Dwight is located in Korea’s entertainment and media hub surrounded by office buildings, apartment complexes, and other structures, making us oblivious to the direct impact urban development has on our ecosystem. Primary goal of the Eco Council is to remind our community members of our shared responsibility to help protect and preserve our planet.

The Eco Council took steps to create a pollinator-friendly space on the school rooftop to address specifically the decline in bee population that is attributed to major culprits such as pests and pathogens, exposure to agrochemicals and habitat loss and degradation. Pollinators and bees are important in the production of 70-90% of fruits and vegetables humans consume worldwide. Due to the current weather condition in November, students in the Eco Council set up several planter boxes that will be filled with native plants and flowers in Springtime to attract pollinators and bees. They also built bee hotels to provide much-needed shelter for solitary bees and wasps. Furthermore, Dwight students also sought out advice from bee experts at Urban Bees Seoul to learn about establishing beehives in the pollinator-friendly space.

Our students were featured on Call to Earth Day 2023 with Paula Hancocks on CNN on November 28th. Our Shared Home was the theme for 2023 Call to Earth Day, and it examined urban development and wilderness and celebrated inspirational people such as our students in the Eco Council who are working to find positive solutions to the ever-changing and expanding human footprint on our environment. They were able to go beyond the Dwight community and reached a greater audience with their live shot on CNN.
