The Living Ocean and Coast. Diversity of Resources and Sustainable Activities

Ocean…its mysteries have been fascinating human minds since time immemorial. It’s the subject of various legends, myths, fairy-tales. It’s the place where life appeared and every living being on our planet. Its depths treasure the history of our origin, its waves are a source of our existence, while its power and riches our future.

The infinity of space is more familiar to us, than the deep of the Ocean, and every time we immerse into it, we come back not only with new knowledge, but with new enigmas as well. They say, a drop of the Ocean water contains everything the Ocean has. Feel the Ocean, embrace it…now it’s possible. Today, we, the children of the Ocean, will dive into a world full of mysterious, metamorphoses and amazing discoveries.

Russian Exposition Idea

A group of orientalists from the leading research centers and universities of Russia have come up with a concept that should fully meet the expectations, outlook and culture of the Korean. According to the Institute of Oriental Studies, Russia has the following associations in the minds of the Korean: a country with well-developed scientific industry, rich history and culture and a high-tech state.

The concept of a “way” has for the Korean – as well as for the most Asian people – a most important, to a certain degree, philosophical and ethnical meaning. It’s the sound system of moral and cultural norms that establish the development of a man and society in general. The motif of a “way” has been taken as a basis for the Russian exposition that was figuratively divided into four principal areas: the history of the ocean exploration; utilization of the ocean today; harmonious coexistence of man and the ocean.

The sequence of the sections reflects the progress in the relationship of man and the Ocean: from discovering to studying and exploration, from utilization to conservation and development.
