Mr. McNeil will also discuss AFSC's humanitarian assistance programs which includes technical assistance to the citizens of North Korea, medical assistance, and even musical exchange.

Energy and Security in North Korea

Part 3 of the spring series: "NORTH KOREA: THE HUMAN FACE"

Wednesday, March 17th 6:00pm program, 7:00pm reception with Korean refreshments


Guest speaker for the North Korea: Human Face Series:

A discussion with Scott BruceDirector of US Operations for the Nautilus Institute for Security and Sustainability at the USF Center for the Pacific Rim 


Winter is a dangerous time for North Koreans, as it is when they are most likely to run out of food and coal. Given the endemic energy shortage in the DPRK, projects that promote energy efficiency and the transfer of energy-efficient technology to the country are a necessity. This talk will discuss the impact of cooperative, humanitarian energy efficiency projects in North Korea which have a direct and significant impact on the lives of many North Koreans, build in-country human capacity, and helps to open the door to further engagement.
