People for Earth invited Professor Shinichi Tsuji, the author of "Slow Life: the philosophy of slowness and the way of coexistence for ecological life" to speak at the fifth Yujae Special with the theme of "Slow-Life, Slow Philosophy and the Way of Coexistence for Ecological Life." Professor Tsuji, an ecologist and environmental activist, first advocated 'Slow Life' and continued to promote it in various ways, such as publishing the book "Economics of Happiness" and running the 'Sloth Club. Professor Tsuji spoke about the ecological life of sloths and the way of slow lifestyle. In particular, he emphasized 'slow, small, simple, and short’ lifestyle, breaking away from 'bigger, faster and more' aspects of modern life. The audience of the fifth Yujae Special had a fun and meaningful time learning about Professor Tsuji's insight on 'small is beautiful’.
